I create highly textured abstract pieces with new and reclaimed fabric, paper, and objects, thread, and acrylic paint. My work bears the imprints of the manipulation of my materials: the ripping, unraveling and layering of fabric, the stitching and knotting of threads, and the printing, dripping, and scraping of paint.
My art emerges from memories of city, shore, and woods. Peeling billboards and cracked sidewalks. Seaweed, sand, and stones. Rough bark and plush moss. I see beauty in imperfections in my environment that are wrought by time, natural elements, and human use. Likewise, I cherish the imperfections in my work that arise through accident, intuition, and improvisation.
