I am primarily a textile artist whose work combines sewing, printmaking, embroidery and quilting techniques. Lately, my art has been focused on recording objects from urban spaces, and exploring relationships between architecture, time and memory. My work celebrates surrounding city structures; buildings, water towers, smokestacks and the like. They are monuments from another era that have stood the test of time. Their mere presence links generations. In a more subtle way, they are meant to echo the quiet solitude of city life. My art is always evolving and shifting. While I revisit past ideas in new materials, I never confine myself to a single subject matter. I enjoy experimenting with scale. There is a playfulness and absurdity to both miniature and oversized work.
