Artist Statement

I make art employing the most vernacular of all media - stitched fabric. I was originally inspired by the work of the conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth to present quilts as art within a gallery context. Moving beyond the conceptualists' appropriation of found domestic objects, I have chosen to maintain the integrity of my object ~ a quilt ~ starting with white fabric and lavishing upon it layers of process. My goal is the creation of a contemplative object, both beautiful and evocative, both well-crafted and spontaneous in design.

The CONTOUR SERIES explores the textures and forms of woven fabric with the stitched line. I start with hand dyed, printed, and stitched fabric which I scan. These original scans are digitally manipulated, enlarged, layered and then inkjet printed with fabric dye. The final fabric is free motion machine quilted. The resulting whole cloth quilts are a twenty-first century blend of low and high tech processes. The finished object has the structure of a quilt, but the images are informed by fine art and graphic design traditions.
