Tell us about yourself!  

My background is in painting. I painted by layering color in thin translucent layers. On the advice of a friend, I began experimenting with layering semi-transparent pieces of colorful silk fabric (silk organza). I was immediately fascinated with being able to see through all of the silk layers and the moire effect caused by the overlapping grid structures of the silk. Thinking about this grid structure made me want to learn to weave. My first handwoven artworks were colorful see-through panels of linen that I layered on the wall. With these works, I realized that everything that I was trying to achieve in paint (light, air, color, and vibration) was right there in the woven fabric installations. That was back in 2014. I am still creating artworks that address light, air, color, and vibration using the woven grid.
