ABOUT THE ARTIST
I've always been someone fascinated by color and pattern. Using fabric as my palette is a natural choice. I've been published several times and have won best of category and best in show at many fairs of show at many art shows around the country.
ABOUT THE ART
I am an artist who believes my images are the embodiment of stories and I am their author. The creation of these pieces are my tales of romance, mystery, tragedy and documentary. As master storyteller my role is to draw you, the reader / viewer, into the experience of life's small moments. Fabric, pattern, texture, paint and thread are the vocabulary. I choose not to work with computers or image transfer. All of my images are generated as original drawings from my sketchbook. There is something wonderful created when the artist's hand creates line. The simplicity and strength of the original drawing is powerful. Using the sketch as template, scissors, fabric and sewing machine breathe life into the work. Recycled and vintage fabrics are my palette. Deconstructed clothing and formerly loved household fabric which has already had one life, is now transformed into another. Every image is a glimpse into the small moments of our collective humanity. Our lives as individuals are messy and complex. We have frayed edges and open seams. We as people are the patchwork of our individual experiences; love, joy, pain and sorrow.
