The artist states, “Touch is an essential connection to life weaving an unconscious thread to the human spirit. My art evolves intuitively through a manipulation of concept, surface, color, texture, form and textile. My purpose is to touch people’s spirits with beauty and healing.”
Fiber and textiles have always been associated with the aesthetics of feminine presence, creative power, ancestry, social relationships and fragility. In ancient cultures, cloth served as a metaphor for the transitory nature of life - from the origin of birth, to the final passage of death. It retained memory. Textiles have a rich history of spiritual healing, connection and protection on many symbolic levels. Dual in nature, it represents physical and spiritual philosophies, conscious and unconscious realities. This tactile art medium expresses my feminine and masculine qualities, my inner and outer worlds.
