Image Statement: In this current political and environmental chaotic world, I often feel small and helpless. I long to escape and fly with the birds who are above it all. Either steadfast or stubborn, I have made art within the same medium for decades. Using thread as my material, I dye linen, paper or cotton with primarily botanical dyes from plants and minerals. I weave, embroider or crochet these threads, seeking to define a personal truth and collective wisdom.
