I’ve had a life-long curiosity about how things grow, function, and interact in nature. I focus on pattern and structure, emphasizing the actions and effects of separation and (re)connection. Most recently, my work investigates the impact of climate change and weather extremes.
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 break apart and reconfigure, exploring the effects of my actions. Chance often dominates my technique, requiring that I respond to changes that occur in order to 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.
