Materials inspire me - a carload of empty Arizona Tea cans my son and
his high school friends collected in the back of his Isuzu, a discarded
encyclopedia (thrown away by my husband who NEVER throws away a book),
old National Geographic Magazines in an attic, scraps of beautiful silk.
I enjoy taking these materials and using them to explore particular ideas or
compositions from a variety of perspectives. My art is inspired by color and
relationships, both personal, political, and in nature. I use techniques traditionally
used in fiber art in non-traditional ways - weaving aluminum or pages from a
book, making a dress that has more meaning than just a fashion statement.
I have always had a drive to experiment and make unique things with my hands.
Art is one of my languages for expression.
