A sampling of recent work

I am interested in exploring pairs of forces that counter one another, yet somehow coexist.

The Knots series examines the tension between predictability and volatility, knowing and not knowing, and the internal and external.  I’ve connected this set of ideas to R.D. Laing’s book Knots, in which the psychiatrist investigates circular patterns of thought in relationships.  Other influences to this body of work include Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, family photo albums, my experiences as a preschool art teacher, and intuitive responses to materials: string, trophies, photographs, and textiles.

Lately I’ve been manifesting these ideas in books, prints, and embroideries.
