I work with fiber, thread and cloth. I am engaged in manipulating materials to express my feelings about my environment.

Fibers follow us not only from birth to death, but from the dawn of human culture. I am fascinated by tribal cultures and the earliest human artistic expressions. Working with fibers to create form and meaning make me feel connected to people who lived before written history.

Plants with their silent stationary enigma and infinite form are my main inspiration. As a scientific researcher I have the pleasure of viewing neuronal tissues and their cellular organization aided by microscope.  Fiber is a perfect media to realize expressions from these inspirations.
