As a fiber artist, Mica focuses on the cultivation of relationships through the tactile nature of her work. Much of today's culture is driven by the need for immediacy through mass production, making it easy to lose touch with who and what is truly meaningful. Mica engages in the elevation of these relationships through art and theatre. Her current work finds root in the relationship between humankind and nature.
