Artist’s Statement
In my persona as an artist I find endless interest in the exploration and experimentation with fiber. Since childhood I’ve been fascinated and charmed by fabric/fabric that is ever-present in our lives and history, as essential for ordinary clothing as it is for splendid, regal robes. Fabric provides me with unlimited creative possibilities to print, dye, and manipulate, and also the opportunity to challenge traditional concepts of strength, fragility, and the struggle for permanence in life.

I am linked to my past through the threads in my art. Throughout each exploration I seek and attempt to recognize the unexpected.
