The natural world provides inspiration and endless symbolic meanings. There are moments in the day when the falling of a leaf, or a tree before me glows with its unique markings, colors and rhythm. At other moments a memory of a place, person or experience reveals itself. It is those moments that seem to infuse my studio and bring spiritual meaning to the process.
I work intuitively, like the jazz musicians I admire. Painted, hand dyed, repurposed cloth, scissors, needles, embroidery, and photographs are the elements most often used to express my ideas. I improvise - stitching layer upon layer until the work seems complete, always searching for a sense of movement, harmony and balance. The desire to explore, create and enter a mysterious place of possibility is the motivation for each new piece.
