Artist Statement

I am working in two primary forms: (1) as a collagist using traditional supports (canvas, board, etc.) and non-traditional supports such as handmade artist books, and (2) as an artquilter. In my work, I use papers and fabrics that I paint, print, stitch found objects; digital images; text written by me and found text.
