Artist’s Statement: My artwork begins as memory-impressions of places I’ve been, people I have known, the world around me, yesterday’s walk, last summer’s garden. Memory is imperfect, exaggerating certain things, discarding others altogether. And similarly, while my work may resemble something real, it is reality edited, biased and colored by time and circumstance. I am always hoping to connect to the part of the memory that held meaning for me regardless of absolute accuracy. Recently I have begun using recycled clothing fabric which seems to come to me with its own memories. I feel it adds a depth and richness that I respond to. My background in painting and drawing is fundamental to what I do, but I choose to work with fabric for its familiarity and emotional connection to our human experience.
