I am enthralled with the animated line, so I abstain from rulers, straight edges and templates. I cut freely and directly into fabrics, using only my eye as a guide. I love unexpected color shifts and gradations, as well as high contrast color combinations. I love fabrics and surface design and love putting them together in some sort of composition driven only by my intuition. I like exploring various optical effects in my work, especially transparency and shifting foreground/background. I am interested in creating works that explore aesthetic concerns, but at the same time are anchored in the traditional motifs of stripes, checkerboards, borders, and binding found in more traditional quilts.
