I’ve had a life-long curiosity about how things grow, function, and interact in nature. I focus in on pattern and structure, emphasizing actions of separation and connection, and suggesting similarities between microscopic and cosmic forms. Most recently, my work is informed by environmental change.
My textile art is constructed from silk that is sliced and seamed in repetitive turns, inviting arbitrary placement of colors and shapes. Sewing as a creative process allows me to easily divide, mend, and reconfigure as I explore the effects of my actions. Although I invite chance to dominate my technique, I respond to the changes that occur, and orchestrate the final composition.
I’ve begun writing about specific artworks and series to clarify my intentions:
“The Screaming Dreams of Flowers” addresses climate change and pollinator demise.
“The Seasons” is about seasonal change and ceaseless motions of time.
