My work explores and manipulates natural and synthetic fibers: fabric, thread, cord, string, yarn, wool, ribbon, silk, felt…anything fiber. While I never follow a blueprint or set of rules, my process generally involves machine stitching, hand stitching, layering, fusing, cutting, melting, burning, and painting; in no particular order! Creating texture to generate movement in my pieces is important to me. I want the surface of my work to invite the viewer’s eyes to travel over it; pull them in for a closer look; then surprise them with more details not seen from a couple steps back.
