Artist Statement
Nature and textile history are my two greatest inspirations. I am intrigued by the many ways fiber can be manipulated into cloth and the values inherent in textiles across cultures. I use a combination of ancient and modern technique to create work that reflects the grandeur of Nature. Drawing upon the technicalities’ and symbolism of historic textiles allows me to intertwine ancient knowledge with the modern experience, an inquiry into the link between past and present. My
passion for history drives me to work in this way, while nature feeds my inspirations.
