Statement

 The root of my work is focused on the deconstruction of pattern and the perception of actual and implied texture. My use of found fabrics, hand-crafted materials and traditional painting media result in hybrid surfaces that combine to create a mixture of painting, tapestry and installation. For the past couple of years, my preferred medium has been inspired by traditional crafts such as sewing, weaving and macramé, which I combine with found fabrics and textiles. The eclecticism of my surroundings has also deeply influenced the manner in which I perceive things and how I process information both visually and conceptually. As I work, I am particularly interested in the “cross-pollination” or “cross-breeding” of imagery originating from multiple sources. I am looking to expand my current body of work and experiment with other surfaces and mediums.
