" A powerful wave of abstract mark making has taken me over. I love the organic process of large loose movement with a slight dose of a landscape, trees, or sky. I still paint a few surprises, though, that can be interpreted as representational "
" My Industrial Quilts ™ are influenced by the Industrial Revolution, the Mill Girls, and technology. They are conceptual art quilts made with layers of wire cloth and hand stitching with wire. The contrast of machine-made versus hand-made is part of the aesthetic. I incorporate salvaged computer parts and patinated copper as well as other industrial objects in a standardized, repetitive format alluding to factory made products while at the same time maintaining the intimate, personal, and innovative aspects of quilt making. My art quilts combine traditional and non-traditional quilt making"
" I am a multimedia artist, finding beauty in the cracks and shadows. I find inspiration from the natural world, from poetry I am reading and from the things I find as I walk. Lately making art is sometimes absent in my studio work - so I rearrange my stuff and think. Thinking and organizing are crucial parts to my process. I make art that has an element of intentional ambiguity, humor and challenges to perception "
