Artist Statement

THE BLACK DRAWINGS continue the stone-like motif begun in 2001 in an extensive body of work, THE THREADS PROJECT. In this project I wanted to combine my interest and experience with textiles and surface design with my fine art practice. I combined textile elements with drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, mixed-media works on paper, books, and digital drawing.

RIVER, STONES 2003-2004 is a significant textile work from this project and used thread as a drawing element. The stone motif has shifted in 2011-2012 and resulted in the use of dots in drawings and works on paper as well as a series of paintings on canvas.
