Artist Statement, Painting and Textiles

I love to create artwork and even useful things, working with paint, canvas, thread, sewing machine, iPad, pencil, wood, wire, or whatever medium seems to fit the idea, and deliver. I enjoy learning about structure and technique.  When painting, I think it is important to start from scratch--so stretch the linen, apply coats of gesso and make sure the acrylic and oil are applied with thoughtfulness. When weaving, I'm caught in the color, pattern, warp and weft. Quality is Job One.

So, I like fresh new journeys into arts where all we learn is incorporated into the things we make. Keep peeling off the layers and find new ways to refine and incorporate."
