My work is usually in response to something that just happened to me or around me. Kind of like doing journal writing but more visual. Working in the studio helps me process and order troubling events, healing and repairing through simple mechanical acts like sewing and drawing.
The images or shapes or things in these pieces have occurred though my work for a very long time; a ladder a paramecium, a potato, bundles of string or sticks, repeated stitches. each piece is linked and speaks to the other.
Other influences: handkerchiefs, laundry, laundry lines, pillows, collections, organizing, fossils, anthropology, archeology, biography, and cartography.
