artist statement

I have been a feltmaker for twenty years. All my felt is handmade, and I create sculpture as well as dimensional pieces of inlay design which are often embellished and embroidered. Felt has a tendency to mutate and change form. There’s an element of chaos that emphasizes process over result, leading to an unplanned order, a natural unfolding and allowing the work to have a life of it’s own.

There is always a story in my work, mixing the personal and symbolic. My inspirations and translations revolve around chaos theory, vortex energy, women’s power and aspects, seeds, and life/death imagery, which are all my personal experience.

My main focus is fine fiber artwork that emphasizes color, construction and deconstruction. Form, technique, and the combination of felt, wire, and encaustic are my current explorations.
