Here are a list of things that describe my artwork:
Response to the times we live in
Abstract and Figurative
Are you interested in my creative process and technique? The top three publications below spell out how I create most of my figurative artwork. However, one’s process evolves, and more recently I am doing less fusing and more sewing by hand. When doing a figurative piece, I still use a tracing of my image and work flat on a table. If I am not fusing, then I pin and tape things in place until I am ready to sew by hand. I sometimes talk about my process on blog posts: Conceptual Art, How is it done, and I don’t get it have a lot of information about process.

Do I teach workshops? No
Do I give talks? Yes, sometimes in the Region.
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. Within the work I have a balance of unfinished imperfect areas with those portions clearly in focus.
