I employ slow techniques that compel me to savor the process of creating; from the exhilaration of selecting colors and textures to the rhythmic lullaby of stitching by hand. Often working this textiles, fiber, paper and paint, I find artistic inspiration in a medium that some might find rooted in domestic tradition. Perhaps true in the sense that familiar fabrics are often used in my mixed media constructions but those common materials allow me to create new from what may be considered old. It is through this slow reordering of materials that I am able to expand my ideas for each work. Layers of new meaning are often revealed with each unhurried step and deliberate stitch.
