ARTIST STATEMENT

My artwork reflects a passion to shape order out of chaos—to start with bits of threads and fabrics and make something complex and satisfying where nothing existed before.  As I create, I embrace and celebrate the ancient heritage and language of cloth and the material culture that textiles inherently express.
