My work, which can be characterized as fiber collage, has a dense visual surface, created by successively layering paint, printing, dye, and often paper or other objects on fabric then cutting up and physically layering by appliqué or reverse appliqué, followed by stitching by hand or machine. I am intrigued and inspired by windows, geology and geography, and poetry.
