Artist Statement

In the making, I can see my place within this large network; I can impose my own order, which exists only because I do. It is an ordering, but the order becomes evident after the fact. This relief is only temporary as the material I ultimately turn to is ephemeral and the arrangement short term.

I work primarily with and on paper to make sewn and collaged wall-works and temporary installations.

These works visually translate found pattern in natural, man-made structures, contemporary and traditional surface patterns.
