Babbling towards coherency.
I have always been deeply affected by color. I see it but I also feel it. Silk and wool are my preferred mediums. I love the luminosity of silk and am only now learning about the deep beauty of wool felt.
Fiber in general holds the possibility of a more direct, whole body interaction that works with a variety of senses. I want to create art that works towards dissolving the boundaries between object and viewer.
The craft of fiber traditions – in all its manifestations – intrigues, fascinates and humbles me. I have studied many traditions and have deep respect for the artisan’s hand. I have borrowed, adapted and made my own – from a large array of techniques. I mix and match so that I might use what intuitively feels appropriate to convey the meaning and energy of the piece.
