artists statement

My art is a personal record of experiences and memories…a library of stored time that is a history of a conscious mind, representing the intangible…modern compositions based on texture and pattern. Through various techniques such as weaving, dyeing, screenprinting and photography, I have developed an ‘alphabet’ of sorts that consists of form, symbol and texture. With these processes I ‘write’ my story, translating my thoughts and dreams into something that can be viewed and shared with everyone. The tangible texture that is created with multiple processes is amazing and creates spaces to hold the various symbols or found objects I incorporate. By using these processes and various found objects, I want to create a resting place for the mind to play and contemplate. I have chosen fiber for its tactile quality and the fact that as humans we are in constant contact with fabric of all sorts; it is something that is common to everyone, everywhere.
My subjects are mostly my dreams and thoughts. I work to capture memories and put them down as stories in fabric and woven structures. I use various symbols from religion and metaphysics to relay the ideas I see or dream about. I take memories and thoughts and give them substance in cloth, using patterns from the external world to represent the workings of the internal world and to show the connection between the two.
The hand processes I use lend intimacy to what is created and help me to find meaning and substance in life. I am a designer at heart and organize space, information and texture in my pieces. I want to create beautiful things for the enjoyment of everyone, to share beauty and idea
