“Text, Texture, Textiles: My work uses the crossing of warp and weft to explore other intersections – time and space, the visible and the invisible, the material and the nonmaterial, the sacred and the profane, being and nothingness. I seek to create structures to capture the intangible, physical manifestations which embody or objectify abstractions. The structures and objects I bring together become material evidence of the insubstantial and elusive, embodying feeling, and our spoken and considered ideas.”
