In my artwork, I am seeking to find the simple essence of a thought, idea or object; to notice our natural surroundings and things that are passed by in our busy lives or to see something in a different way. Geometric and organic shapes, lines and a focus on color are the main components that repeat themselves throughout my body of work.
Mixing my own dye colors for my fabrics allows me to create a personal palette. From afar, the colors I use seem solid but upon closer inspection, imperfections and color variations are noticeable. This creates subtle texture and variation and conveys the hand made quality of the artwork.
Abstraction is a common thread throughout my artwork and, in some ways, is my attempt to simplify the world around me and get back to what is basic and necessary.
