Artist's Statement

My work is about change. I am curious about the long-range effect of change on us, our society and the environment. This is why I am so attracted to the multi-layered texture of old decayed walls and the ruins of ancient cultures. I am fascinated by the marks we leave for the elements to deal with over time.

Most of the cloth I use starts out either black which I discharge using various resists or white which I dye and paint. From there, I silk screen, print and stitch the fabric.

Making collages allows me to work improvisationally. Adding and subtracting as I go, I create marks and layers with symbols and stories.
