The impermanent nature of sensory experience as well as of the physical, phenomenological world occupies my field of creative inquiry. My work explores  the ephemeral realms of memory, composition and decomposition. My art objects communicate the unstable tension ever-present in our transitional world. I transforms the familiar, such as newspaper, cloth, recording tape,  in order to demonstrate the paradoxical elements of disposability and endless potential. I repurpose the unwanted debris of our disposable society, through techniques historically subscribed to as “women's work”, like weaving, sewing, and knitting, revealing aspects of beauty and whimsy, while  embracing the  impermanence of even the work itself. As an artist, I believe, and hope to convey, that process carries  as much value as the end result, perhaps process functions as our most important teacher. With a wry wit and a developed sense of the surreal, I approaches my art practice as an evolving inquiry into the ever-changing states of being in and out of time.
