Self-taught as an artist, my work process encour­ages spon­tane­ity and exper­i­men­ta­tion. Cloth is dyed, painted and screen­printed to yield a com­plex sur­face. I build pieces with suc­ces­sive lay­er­ing of fab­ric, embell­ished with hand and machine stitch­ing. Each layer of color or line influ­ences the next, as I explore the inter­play of marks absorbed within the fiber of the cloth with marks and tex­ture placed on the cloth. Nature, and life expe­ri­ence are impor­tant sources of inspi­ra­tion, becom­ing occa­sions for explor­ing the inner space of feel­ing, mem­ory, fan­tasy and myth. I find art­mak­ing to be a joy­ful jour­ney ever grat­i­fy­ing, often hum­bling, on which there are no mis­takes, only opportunities.
