"I am inspired by patterns and compositions found in nature. My studio is my favorite place to be. The walls are covered with ever changing collected bits of visual information…photos, and photocopies, sketches, and painted papers, leaves and sticks and works in process.
I gather these elements and bring them together to create my ‘layered landscapes’.
By comparing and contrasting microscopic and macro views and the relationships between them, I am seeking to describe the visual relationships between minute details of natural objects and views of distant topographies.
To create my work, I explore the details I’ve discovered and captured with sketching, digital scanning and photographs. First by dissecting the images, then reconstituting them with fabric, thread, paper, paints, pencils and acrylic mediums. I layer, draw and collage, building marks, pattern and imagery."
