My work results from my attempt to bring peace and harmony into my life and the lives of the people who view my work. Part of the peace comes from doing all of the work myself. From the beginning I have been involved in every phase of the work—weaving, spinning, dyeing, felting and paper making. I feel a kinship with anyone who has ever created something by hand. It pleases me to know that my work will never be reproduced by machine.
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.
