As a textile and mixed-media artist, I am absorbed in the process of fibre manipulation and embellishment, orchestrating colours, and creating unique textural surfaces. My current work examines the fraying properties of various fabrics - both ripping on grain and cutting off grain. I combine these with assorted threads, and yarns. When tightly reassembled, these pieces can have the properties of a crazy patchwork quilt, or a painted canvas with tonal shades resembling brush strokes. When loosely reassembled, the effect is entirely different. These pieces become unique, diaphanous surfaces - a contemporary form of lace.
My focus is contemporary fine art, but I also design one-of-a-kind scarves & wraps combining novel textile techniques.
My fascination with texture, light, transparency and positive & negative space keep me continuously experimenting.
Much of my recent work pays respect to the beauty and preservation of nature, and the juxtaposition of its power and fragility.
