Artist Statement

I became an artist the moment I found out I could take something I felt and make it real. Overtime, I have realized that the media that makes things more real thru me is fiber. Fiber is a vast and intricate genre that continues to thrill and transport my inner world to the outside.

Touch has been created specifically for the visitors of the Fiberart International 2004 at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. After many moments of "not quite getting it," I found my inspiration in a dream image on a frustrating day and, in all places, an outfit I picked out on a sleepy morning. I guess my barely conscious mind knows what it is doing.

In Touch, I welcome people to interact with textures and color, two elements that infinitely inspire. Feel freely and enjoy.
