With textiles and
thread as my medium, I have merged my love of fabric, color and graphic
design. Using clean lines and meticulous construction techniques
borrowed from years of training in graphic design and a career in fashion
design, I incorporate design integrity and construction complexity with the
highest degree of craftsmanship. .
My artwork examines light,
reflection and complex elements. By unfolding
the relationship of lights, darks and color I break down an image and translate it into a melange of fabric and construction techniques. My abstract work examines shapes
juxtaposing the same elements. Although they are a slower and more tedious medium,
fabric and thread appeal to me more than the paint, pen and pencil of my graphic design
training because of their flexibility and texture.
the piece in my mind and laying it out in its pieces and sections allows me
to see the wholeness and feel the certainty of my art.
