Statement

I like to tell stories. In a way my fiber work is about telling stories. Sometimes they are stories that attempt to translate a particular piece of the natural world, sometimes myths and legends, sometimes stories about stories. I also love the natural world—the habits of insects, reptiles, and amphibians; the multifarious forms of plants; and the small but miraculous one-time phenomena that occur every moment around us. The difficult problem of the translation of the exact textures and colors of the natural moment into an image made of fiber is fascinating to me. In my jackets, I am reporting on some of the daily phenomena that I have witnessed in the world around me—butterflies in the mist, the surprising beauty of a spider’s web, light and shadow in a field, the lively round of life and death in the pond.
