Floral

 

My work shares a secret - one that is waiting in the details. I use fabric like many artists use paint. Up close, you can find variety in fabric textures, wandering threads, transparent moments, and a history in the layers of my work. I find many advantages in using fabric in my collages. Foremost, there is a connection I make with the world of quilt-making and fiber art. Growing up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, I was exposed to the beauty and ingenuity of Amish Quilts. Fabric is a versatile material, one that I have an emotional response to. I am interested in finding metaphorical connections between fabric and subject matter.
