Artist Statement

My work on silk is primarily inspired by the beauty of nature. Such as the inside of a flower or the beam of light in between formations of rock. Every second can change this appearance entirely. I attempt to blend nature's most precious moments with my own imagination. Silk is an ideal medium for this interactive play. There are a variety of techniques I like to use. Every touch can change the image significantly whether dye, salt, water, air etc. For mostly, but not always leading to immediate gratification. Just as in real life it is always a choice between gaining control and letting go.
