Artist Statement – Collage Work on Linen  

Making art is an endless and fascinating journey of discovery for me.  I work in all manner of media, combining sewing, painting and drawing.  I use images as metaphors to represent the eternity of life – the familiar and ever present in our lives.  I focus on the beauty and spirituality of humankind from a desire to keep it alive with the difficult world that we live.

Using collage as a basis for each artwork, I incorporate paper, fabric, old monoprints and maps that I have collected over the years.  Because of the personal elements with the work, each piece can be interpreted biographically, as places that I have visited or references to home, family and mythology.  Ultimately, through the sewing, weaving and blending of materials and images, there is a reflection of what we all share in the world, a unity that reminds us of the simplicity of life.
