artist statement

Working with fibers and textiles such as string, twine and rope coated and embedded in adhesives of beeswax, resin, glue and acrylic, I create process-oriented art that molds materials into intricately controlled forms. Drawing with fiber, my work exists in both two and three dimensional spaces. Inspired by Minimalism and geometry. I contrast themes of repetition and order against the uncontrollable variations of natural materials. Rooted in abstraction, I construct textured monochromatic pieces that invite viewers to engage with their own subjectivity, sit with imperfection and make personal associations.
