About the Artist
Whether I am printing upon it or embedding fibers and material fragments into sculptural forms, paper provides a vehicle for visually expressing my relationship to the environment. It is a meditative process and a kinetic, tactile exploration of how my experiences and concerns fit into the larger global arena. Striving for a convergence of form, texture, and mystery that will engage the viewer, I wish to open the door to more questions and connection between the viewer, the work and myself.
I want to express the patterns and flows that I see, offer them up to view and discussion, such as learning that the tiny creek flowing through the edge of my property is so critical to the Potomac River, which, in turn, is so critical to the Chesapeake Bay and on to the ocean.
Historically, paper has been a vehicle of communication, whether overtly in a broadside or as a vessel of meaning and this is of endless attraction to me.
My work has been included in juried exhibitions at the Mason Gross Gallery/Rutgers University, The Corcoran Museum in D.C., the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, and Washington, D.C. gallery exhibitions. Background includes attending the Penland School of Crafts and a Master of Fine Arts degree from George Mason University.
