My textile art is constructed from silk that is sliced and seamed in repetitive, methodical turns. As the work grows and transforms, a record of every stitch and cut remains evident. I use the zigzag stitch to suggest energy, delicate connections, and ideas about how our world is structurally composed.
Patterns in nature are my primary sources of inspiration. Transitions from growth to decay, motions like floating or dispersing, and microscopic or cosmic structures are typical themes.
A balance between control and disorder is the driving force as I create. I invite chance in aspects of my technique, and encourage each piece to evolve on its own. Yet I respond to the changes that occur, and orchestrate the final composition.
