About the Artist

 

 

A kind of magic happens mixing raw materials and focused energy, creating something that has never existed before – ideas now occupying space — it is unlike any other experience.

Artist’s Statement

Why make art? Creating is such a deeply rooted impulse. Like riding my bike or hiking, it enlarges my world and makes my heart beat faster and stronger. I get outside my head and feel fully alive. Making art allows me to construct a container and a conduit for everything I feel; then allows me to share something that is meaningful and authentic – and, often, joyful.
Why sewing? For me it is the perfect medium, a blend of creating and constructing. I’ve always loved working by hand with fabrics, with all the colors and textures – so tangible and substantive. A kind of magic happens mixing raw materials and focused energy, creating something that has never existed before – ideas now occupying space — it is unlike any other experience.
