Abstract Conceptual.    My earthy tactile pieces show our connection to nature and to one another. In both my abstract conceptual and my figurative work this relationship is what I am drawn to, as well as ideas about time, impermanence and communion. Fabric is a nurturing medium that is perfect for expressing comforting ideas.
