Artist Statement

Creating work with skill, sincerity, and minimal environmental impact are the core values that influence my artistic practice.  I work with natural fibres and dyes, and incorporate secondhand materials whenever possible.  I employ processes and techniques which produce little waste.  I strive to create textiles that are of enough physical and aesthetic quality that they may be passed on for generations , while at the same time, if ever undesired and discarded will compost back into the earth.  Inspiration for my work comes primarily from the materials themselves.  I let them sing and help to augment their beautiful voice.
