ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a mixed-media artist and have recently started incorporating weaving, crochet and embroidery into my art practice. I am now exhibiting this textile based work instead of my paintings. I find working with fiber exciting and feel a real connection to the craft and materials. I think this connection has spurred on a feeling of intimacy in the art. My current work is called The Roads Series and reflects the journey of my personal, emotional and political life.
