As a woman, it is natural to be interested in using fibers creatively – stretching the normal use of fiber by using their physical properties. I have a strong response to fibers and textiles.
While I am a visual artist, I tend to create a body of work that is to be read sequentially, much like a book is read, or music, dance, and theatre are experienced. It requires the viewer to spend time "reading all the pages" of the work. It is very intimate and instinctive work.
Thematically I am exploring internal and exterior landscapes. The majority of my work is informed by my interaction with nature and the spirit of place, whether it is physical, spiritual, or mental. I look for underlying, basic supporting structures both in micro and macro views. Especially the western landscape impacts on my soul and my imagery. I continue to discover that the years that I have spent outdoors—living, playing, and working—have sculpted both me and my work. I continue to have conversations and dialogues with that world and I find that expressing that dialogue through fiber to be rewarding.
