COLORS AND TEXTURE

The majority of my work is guided by the interplay of color and texture.

I draw on childhood memories of Fantasy/Sci-Fi movies, cartoons, finger-painting, crayons, and coloring outside the lines. I combine the colors and fun of Pop-Art, the Dream and fantasy qualities of Surrealism and the beauty of Impressionism.

My Fiber Painting starts with a color and progresses to texture by building up layers and colors of thread, fiber, paint, and mixing hand and machine stitching.

Fiber is the "canvas", thread is the "paint" and my sewing machine the "brush"--- I am a painter--
