I find inspiration in nature, from places I travel to, but mostly from the views of the woods and the lake from my studio. The places may be different, but the message is still the same. I like to magnify ordinary things in the environment. I think truth comes from the observation of nature.
The geometric work is quilt-like in that each artwork is a memory made up of seven pieces which could be fabrics, either based on real fabrics or ones I have designed which remind me of a person, event or place. These memories go back to age two. My memories are very vivid; they are not based on photographs.
These are all made of natural materials—wool of all kinds, bones, feathers, metal, etc.—and employ many fiber and weaving techniques which reflect my early experimentation with all kinds of primitive looms.
