As a contemporary fiber artist, I have a strong preference for natural fibers and materials. The shapes, designs and colors in the materials inspire the artwork. The wonderful thing about using natural materials, such as pine needles, is that they have a life and character of their own. I sometimes like to combine these natural elements with found objects.
The inter-play among mind, hands, and a host of materials continually stimulates the creative process and leads my work in new directions. Using traditional materials in sometimes un-orthodox ways, I want to create designs, shapes and styles that stretch the imagination and react with the senses.
