Artist Statement:

For the first half of my life, I would have told you that I didn’t have a creative bone in my body. Then I realized that creativity isn’t in the bones; it’s in the heart and soul, and in the mind. It’s there for the seeking, and I embarked upon the internal search.

This discovery has led me to a lifelong path of learning and making. What I value most is the process. It’s like finding your way in a new country, without a map, with just the faintest hint of what you’re seeking. You just have to keep looking, and trying, and looking some more. And learning, and learning.

I make textile art because I feel a natural affinity for cloth, thread, texture, and color.   But in the long run, it’s just a medium for expression. Visually, I am intrigued by fragmentation and abstraction. But it must be authentic; original, and move me forward on my journey.
