“I work with multiple materials, such as fabrics, branches, wire, copper, paper and ceramic shards, creating an assemblage as part of a visual language
suggesting a story. The narrative speaks of gathering the work of divergent cultures, histories and generations.
Materials from around the world, created by many hands, are represented in a single multimedia assemblage.
Fragile branches may be used as framing devices; tapering willow twigs and knotty grape vine tentacles are bent as if resisting the interstitial
pull of perhaps a hundred different textiles, each attached with thread, strings, wire and weighted with smooth stones or other found objects.
The assembled sculptural form may be reminiscent of a quilt, a canoe or a totem. I strive to have the materials form a new voice of a gathered people,
a celebration of the human spirit in relation to its Creator, whether from secret spaces or the most flamboyant expressions.”
