Graphic Fibers
My mixed-media textile pieces are derived from my interest in shapes, colors, reflections and the effects of shadow and light.  In adapting graphic forms, I refine the core of my subject and omit all unessential elements to uncover its underlying character.  Each piece becomes an intense exploration of the graphic matter; shapes, colors and textures brought together to become my idea of a cohesive work of art.
