Revisiting Jackson won the Award for Most Innovative Use of the Medium by Friends of Fiber Art at Quilt National 2001, then toured until 2003.
I originally started making art as an abstract painter.Much of my fiber work involves the use of tiny fiber fragments, found objects, recycled materials and cast-offs, (remnants and discarded objects) bits of fabric, candy wrappers, fortune cookie fortunes, and safety pins. I enjoy the playful juxtaposition of hard metallic objects such as jewelry, paperclips, coins and hardware against the softer more luxurious nature of velvet, cotton and silk, satin and lace. I collect and incorporate items with interesting texture, color, or personal significance. Often I think of my work as a depository for the flotsam and jetsam of life. I enjoy the multiplicity and ambiguity of meanings, in my work, which invite the viewer to look further than just the riotous surface of things. Now I truly feel I am painting with fabric and thread.
