“My woven artworks are a study of movement, trajectories, and change. Everything is in motion all the time. We are in motion – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The trajectories of my threads are the paths we may take in the course of a single day or throughout our lives.
I weave because it is the most real way I know to explore, and share what I observe about our lived experience. “
