Artist Statement

“The storyteller is the person who creates an atmosphere in which wisdom reveals itself”, storyteller Barry Lopez noted.

Textiles are the medium I use to tell stories.

My works are created from stories inspired by my life experiences, observations, struggles, dreams and hopes.

I primarily use recycled textiles to tell my stories as the earth and its inhabitants are precious to me and my work reflects my values of environmental conservation.

Allowing a piece to evolve organically lets me listen to the story it wants to tell.
