Artist Statement

As an artist, I draw, paint, sew, sculpt space. My environment in Maine is extremely important to me and influences my work. I work in two mediums: Kinetic Sculpture and Art Quilts. In each, the process is key. Layering, spacial illusion, landscape and autobiography are the subject. Working in twenty foot spans and stitches to the inch, the play of great scale and intimacy piques my interest.

Art Quilts

My quilts are sewn paintings, acrylic on canvas that is then hand quilted. This part of the process allows me to become physically reacquainted with a piece created at arm’s length on the wall, and to add another visual dimension to it. I believe that the work communicates with many because color and mark making are a universal language.
