The accretion of words, gestures, and feelings add layers of memory and meaning to one's life. We build our lives by incremental acts. Each act enriches and adds to a purposeful life. I value the invested time, intention, and labor in my work through the repetitive acts in textile making. Repetition creates mindfulness and centers attention on the task at hand; whether it's throwing a shuttle across a set of yarns, punching a needle into cloth, pulling ink with a squeegee across a table, or looping yarn through rows of chain stitches.
My work embodies a physical and psychological presence connecting through our senses and our emotional underpinnings. It is through these accumulative actions and the seduction of materials that my work attempts to be experienced and understood.
