My work with fabric mosaics derives from my extensive experience in apparel design and construction. My intuitive understanding of the relationships between color, texture and design combined with my passion for detail and devotion to technical mastery makes fabric the natural medium for my artistic expressions. My primary sources of inspiration include wide ranging historical works of art: paintings, sculpture, Byzantine mosaics and iconography, illuminated manuscripts and ancient pottery. I am drawn to subjects reflecting an archetypal feminine beauty, wisdom, grace, courage and strength. Through contemplation of these past works, I am moved to create my own vision with a fresh and modern perspective of the timeless virtues, values and ideals they embody.
