BFA Textiles, California College of Arts & Crafts, 1978

LESSONS LEARNED FROM crustaceans and mollusks that cohabit, the architectural textile of a nest, the ubiquity of plastic, and the insinuation of humans into all things nature, these are what I choose to express in my art making.

THE SHAPES OF SHADOWS, the grace in light, pattern in unexpected places, color that shouts and color that begs for close examination, seeking beauty in the ugly – these are my tools.
