In my work I draw upon my background in science and subsequent research to create images in fabric which evoke the strong connection I feel with the natural world. Since fabric is itself a plant or animal product, it is an ideal material for expressing and capturing the attributes of natural forms, and the techniques I use mirror processes that bring order to diverse and humble materials.
Using a sewing machine, fabric, thread, distinctive appliqué techniques and an evolving visual vocabulary, I strive to interpret and illustrate biological organisms and systems. My intention is to arouse emotional connection by shining a warm light on crucial unseen forces.
Most of my wall pieces are inspired by the biology, mythology and symbolism of trees, classic emblems of the communion of earth and spirit.
