Artist Statement
The process is simply complicated. Cut and layered painted papers are assembled into images before being sewn together with colored thread by sewing machine. Images are at once striking, oft familiar, story-like figures inviting archetypal translations of a shared yet arcane narrative.Words and stories collected from the everyday poetry of form and color, reassembled into imagery to evoke an original presence that lies just beyond the reach of the perceived environment. These collected fragments of the construction of memory, awareness and understanding reanimated in figurative lyricism. All paintings are original and very one of a kind. I have been working in this manner for 28 years, showing primarily in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Santa Fe, Nashville and Mexico.
