I STARTED MAKING CARVED BAS-RELIEF PAINTINGS SO THAT MY AUDIENCE COULD PHYSICALLY CONNECT WITH MY WORK. THIS WAS AFTER I VISITED A FRANK STELLA WALL SCULPTURE EXHIBIT WhERE I WITNESSED A WOMAN REACH OUT AND GENTLY STROKE ONE OF THE PIECES. GUARDS CAME FROM EVERY DIRECTION TO REPRIMAND HER. THAT VERY MOMENT MADE ME WANT TO MAKE ART THAT PEOPLE COULD TOUCH AND INTERACT WITH. IT is VERY IMPORTANT TO ME THAT YOU feel THE PIECES AND ENJOY THEIR SURFACES.


MY Imagery BECAME MUCH MORE PERSONAL as I BEGAN TO TELL MY STORIES AND THOSE YOU HAD TOLD TO ME. THE SENSE OF HOME AND The IDEA THAT WE ARE THE SUM OF OUR MEMORIES is significant IN my WORK.
I WANT THE VIEWER TO PERSONALLY CONNECT AND THEN RELATE THE STORY TO
THEIR OWN MEMORIES SO THAT THE STORY I TOLD BECoMEs THEIR STORY.


I learned how to make Quilts so you could become a Participant in my art. You complete each piece by allowing it to comfort, warm and protect you

ROOTING MY NARRATIVES IN A TRADITIONAL, TACTILE CRAFT MEDIUM HAS ALLOWED ME TO CREATE A SIMPLER MORE ACCESSIBLE LANGUAGE IN MY WORK INSPIRED BY THE SIMPLICITY AND DIRECTNESS OF FOLK ART AND THE BEAUTIFUL STORYTELLING OF JAPANESE WOODCUT PRINTS.
