I’m an abstract contemporary improv textile artist. What does that mean? Basically, I use fabric, paint, dyes, and thread to create, colorful works of art that don’t fit neatly into any one category.
My approach to making art is a lot like the way I used to make jewelry. I don’t have a rigid plan when I start a piece; instead, I let the materials guide me and see where the creative process takes me. It’s a completely spontaneous process. I like to work with different surface textures and materials; many l’ve created out of solid white fabric, to help my pieces tell the story.
Sometimes I use traditional techniques, but I also like to experiment with unexpected materials to push the boundaries of what textiles can be. When I stand back and look at my work, I’m personally filled with a sense of joy and delight viewing the contrasts. With bold brushstrokes, delicate hand embroidery, and unexpected colors, I aim to create pieces that invite viewers to explore and engage with the work in their own unique way. Sparking conversations and connections that might be meaningful to them.
