In my paintings my intention is to create images that evoke a sense of mystery, wonder, an escape from reality. When working in textiles I use imagery from nature, stylized foliage and absurd creatures, suggesting whimsical narratives that draw the viewer into a dream like landscape. I often incorporate different mediums including dyes, acrylics, embroidery and at times linocuts.
