My work deals with the cycles of the natural world and the link between people and nature.  This relationship is never static, and I often use repeated imagery as a metaphor for this dynamic bond.  I also have a deep interest in Chinese art, particularly that of Neolithic and Bronze Age China.  I use this imagery in my quilts, which are often machine quilted in a leiwen (cloud scroll) motif as a symbol of the natural life cycle.

I don’t see myself as an illustrator of a particular moment, or of a specific object.  Instead, my interest lies in depicting the visual experience and the evolution of an image within its natural cycle.

My quilted images are often composed of commercial and hand-painted fabric patches, and should be seen as small windows that allow a magnified view of the interior of the object.  Together, these inner glimpses and the repeated evolving image combine to relate the shared experience between myself, and the world that exists beyond the confines of a building.

My fabrics are a reflection of my love of painting and my fascination with trees and plants.  I spend a lot of time walking through the woods, or following the trails and footpaths of the areas that I visit.    I love the visual texture that vegetation offers, and find that it lends itself well to various forms of interpretation.

I consider my life to be a creative journey.
