Driven by a desire to master new skills and explore new mediums my work is at times whimsical, at times political, at times personal, but it always demands attention from the viewer to realize details of materials and techniques.
Making art is something that has always been part of my life - sometimes in the background and sometimes as a primary focus and means of expression. I have studied art at local institutions and through specialized workshops.
I have worked in many different media including felting, collage, welding, knitting and crochet, embroidery, print making, dyeing and paper mache. I find it most satisfying to be directly manipulating the materials with my hands.
