Artist Statement
I am influenced by the landscape of my childhood, both interior and exterior. I grew up in a remote Quaker community adjacent to the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia, Canada. My work is also influenced by the strong light and colors of Los Angeles, my chosen home.

Hand dyed fabrics and a closely stitched line are how I render the abstract works that are based in my fascination with language and my connection to nature. It takes long hours to create one of my fiber artworks. I start with white fabric, and hand dye it to get my color palette. Then comes hours of hand guided machine stitching, which adds surface design and detail to the work. I love the slow meditative processes of working with fabric in this way.
