About

I create because it is who I am; the physical connection I get from working with my hands is highly satisfying and gives me a sense of purpose. For as long as I can remember I have been making things from leftovers and scraps. As a child I would use old clothing and remnants from my mothers sewing supplies to make outfits and accessories for my stuffed animals using primitive styles of appliqué and embellishment. Since then I have learned countless new skills and techniques including various forms of print media, collage, wood working, dyeing, painting, stitching, sculpting, and whatever else I find interesting. While I still use “scraps” and recyclables as my primary source of material (I’m a bit of an environmentalist), conventional materials have made their way into my practice as needed. Material choices have become a main source of inspiration for my practice, often including elements of nature.
