Artist's Statement

I make contemporary stitched constructions using fabrics and fibers, especially silks, cottons, linens, wools and recycled items. In the various stages of assembly I paint, stain or silkscreen these materials. 

The work is partly representational and partly abstract, even though almost everything begins with photography. I think of my work as play and as a means of mapping my life. Making things requires a closer, more careful look at both my worlds: the natural and my domestic environment.
