The surprise ending that every piece delivers is what compels me to make art.

Drawn to color, shape, pattern, light, and the insinuation of humans into the natural world, I explore all manner of media, and experiment with mixing a few. Several themes run through my work, and often the themes cross – pollinate.

Nests: As a textile, a nest is an exquisite, intricate, intentioned weaving made from a collection of found materials. It is a vessel, a shelter, and a home. For me, a nest is a metaphor for the primal female impulse to nurture.

Archeology: An expression of a personal story through visual layers of time (stratigraphy) using shards, amphoras and remnants as icons.
