Working with textiles and fiber brings me joy and peace. It lets me see and experience gradual transformation both in the fabric and in myself. More and more my work includes my photography and my writing. I like that I can combine these art forms to build my story. I enjoy working independently as well as with a group. Group work can offer a different kind of challenge and bring new discoveries about myself and my work. Inspiration is everywhere and I love combining different sources of inspiration when working. As people view my art I enjoy observing their reactions to see how they may be relating to the story being told and what emotion(s) may be triggered.
