I make fabric constructions because I want to see what happens when an abstract idea of how shapes might relate becomes visible. Sometimes I love the result and sometimes I am prompted to try something different.
While I enjoy working in many media, have chosen to focus on quilting because I have the skills mastered and I want to see how deep I can go with expression in fabric . My interest in other arts informs my work.
I usually work from small units and see how they play off each other. I prefer to work without a precise composition and try to keep an open mind about what the work itself might demand. I like to express movement and depth with interesting shapes. Currently these shapes grow out of structures that are easily created through joining pieces of fabric directly.
