DESCRIBE YOUR ART
Color is the key to all things beautiful to me. Graphic bold images and detail inspire my creations. Taking an original painting and reinterpreting it in fiber gives me the greatest amount of artistic freedom and the utmost pleasure.
INDENTIFY YOUR SOURCE(S) OF INSPIRATION or THE CURRENT DIRECTION OF YOUR WORK
Working with textile paint and texture is key to by design aesthetic. I work from a sketch or a painting and explore options based on a series of abstractions of the original artwork. Graphic images is the focus of the art.
