As an artist living on the New Hampshire seacoast, I am endlessly inspired to explore the beauty of the geometric patterns and designs that are inherent in all aspects of the natural world. To provide a richly satisfying visual experience, I incorporate the interplay of color and shapes that I find in the elements of seacoast life.
In my work, I apply a variety of dye techniques to very fine, highly irridescent silk that I then weave in several layers. My approach creates a vibrant dialog between the individual threads of different colors, as well as between the layers of cloth that define each piece. This allows for a visual experience of depth and movement in my woven designs as they evolve in color and form.
