Fiber Art

Artist Statement: 

Fabric is everywhere - in constant contact with all our senses. Its familiarity is comforting. We wear it, work in it, sleep under it, and admire its beauty and functionality on a daily basis.

Fabric is the medium of my art. I provide the details. Details I learned from both parents. My mother introduced an appreciation for fabric and precision with a needle. The ability to solve construction challenges were learned by observing my father as he built and repaired everything from furniture to toasters. A combination I have used to execute my own work.

Touching textiles as I create is a meditative, sensory process that is essential to my existence as I audition silks, batiks, hand dyes, or create elements that might provide interest and texture to complete the piece. The fine hand stitched details invite the viewer in for a closer look at the layers of fiber, thread and textures. 

I revel in the spontaneous, organic process of working abstractly to communicate life’s stories as they relate to our daily experiences… surrounded by fabric.
