About the Work
Progression and Return
For years I worked as a textile designer, creating prints for the home furnishings industry. When I started out, I used paper, pencils, brushes and gouache paints to create original designs. Later I used a scanner, a computer screen, a stylus, and a printer. The process of color creation also changed, from seeing a color in my mind’s eye and mixing it by hand, to clicking on points within a digital color wheel, with infinite options. Very different tools. Very different mindset.
With my current work, the physical materials are once again central to my process. Whether it be creating wall hangings or wooden structures, the force that drives the work is my interaction with the fabrics, the reeds, the paints, or the wood.
