Process. I love the process of making something. My training is in the performing arts, technical theatre and dance primarily. I came to the visual arts via the somatically based expressive arts certification program. I love color and texture and since drawing is not my strong suit, I turned to paper. Each piece is layered with bits of paper deconstructed . I try to listen to the piece I am working on to guide as to how it wants to be presented.

In addition to the paper is weaving. Weaving is something I have been drawn to for a long time but for numerous reasons I have not followed through on my desire to learn.  In 2017 I finally found a wonderful tapestry instructor thus beginning my journey into the world of yarn. I hope to incorporate the tapestry with my paper and with up-cycled objects.
