Color, dimension, line and texture, these are the tools that build. I am inspired by the colors found in sky and landscape--by the textures found in bark and shell--by the dimensions seen in rocky terrain.
Working with pigment paints mined from the earth and felting with wool from animal sources. These are the things that ground me. Quilting lines enhance the surface and offer another avenue for creative expression. Bird and other animal behaviors inspire me and provide me with a metaphor to the human experience.
I see my world through symbols and express these symbols in my work through the use of plants, animals, insects, and three-dimensional forms. Conceptual works speak to my own dilemmas of trying to maintain balance in a hectic and demanding world.
