I am inspired by repetitive patterns and textures found in both natural and man-made environments, from the microscopic and beyond. I am especially fascinated with the effects of pressure upon objects. Much of my work on cloth and paper focuses on the interplay of these themes. Using paint, dye, photography, and stitch to create unique imagery, my work can be found in the form of quilts, paintings, art journals, and the printed page.
It is not uncommon for me to use unconventional objects in my work, either in the form of embellishment or as a mark-making tool. I like using things that had a "different job" before I use them in my art.
