Advanced Fiber Studio (Highlights)
I like to combine magic and awe with craft and detail. To find process that forces thought in the making. I weave large scale and by hand because it is fun and new, this aspect of fun during creation is important to me. A process that allows interaction, conversation between me and the piece, to allow it to dictate its form. First and foremost when concerning the viewer I believe the work should be beautiful, aesthetically appealing, tactile and intriguing. Conceptualizing has become useful and important mainly for the making process and I feel falls short, is contrived and didactic when forced upon the viewer. Influences never cease, and the desire to make is a true driving force that reads clearly from my work.
