Our world is constantly changing. Bright, vibrant colors and movement are predominant elements of this repetitive, geometric grid-like structure. Light shifts throughout the day. The work is designed to change, dependent on the light and casting shadows. Interact with it; slight movement causes the work to move changing. The work is not stagnant. Space can remain constant or not, light evolves and forms contrasts in relation to light, shadow, movement, and how the viewer interacts with the piece. You can move along with it.

A sketchbook and sewing machine are used to sculpt my colorful fabric constructions. Bright colors and movement are predominant elements of the repetitive, open grid-like structures. Light and shadow are allowed in and create new patterns and colors. I believe my chosen profession of Landscape Architecture influences my work. Landscapes themselves are constantly changing and evolving, never static. The work reacts to its environment. Viewers can interact with each sculpture; slight movement causes the work to move, changing it ever so slightly. The work is rarely stagnant. By traditional definition these sculptural, fabric constructions can be labeled quilts – layers of fabric held together by stitch. The hand-dyed cotton fabric along with non-traditional quilting materials is used such as wire mesh, grommets, mylar, velcro, metal rods, metal tubing, and wire.More About Artist
