About the Artist

As a visual storyteller, I interpret the obscured and reveal hidden realities through paper and cloth assemblage. Patterns, and especially grid forms, are thematic structures in much of my work. There is an organizational aspect, but the deeper connection is that patterns come together to form a whole cohesive thought. Details of beading or stitching are repetitive, tiny rituals that can speak of moments in time. Equally important is the vernacular of the paper or cloth selected. My right and left brain fight a lot. A Seattle native, I graduated from the University of Washington in 1998 with a BFA in Fibers.
