I am attracted to texture, materials and luminosity. I interconnect shapes and units to form a larger whole and combine fragments of thoughts that have interrelationships. The recurrent themes of wholeness and natural change thread through the work.
My personal expression evolves from the desire to explore and the desire to open a door without knowing where that door leads. My techniques cross centuries, landscapes and cultures. Handmade paper is combined with cast and fused glass. Overbeaten fibers are used with natural coloration and watermarked with patterns. Other fibers are sometimes embossed and submerged in vibrant color. I like the contrast of the organic materials with the solidity of the glass.
