I use the traditional techniques

of weaving and stitching to

produce bold, new works that

shout in joy with new leaves,

flowers, and cities of blocks of

color. Creating these works is a

meditative process in which I

use my hands to slowly stitch

and weave.  Touching the fabric

and strips with my fingertips

makes the work very intimate.

There is a dancing rhythm to

the marks made by the needle

as it joins with thread the cut

out shapes.  As I weave and

pass the strips of fabric over and

under the warp threads, I feel as

if I am playing music on a harp

and creating new harmonies as I

combine things in different

ways.
