I noticed a grasshopper once and, being so delighted by it, pointed it out to a fellow student. His response was a shrug and "So what?" That "So what?" is what I examine and express in my art. It is a focus on the richness and complexity of the natural microcosm. In my art I dramatize the miraculous in nature and share my interpretation and intimate scrutiny of ephemeral things. It is the moment I emphasize, a visual instant within which the mysteries and secrets of the universe can be considered through visual observation.
Tapestry weaving seems to express my feelings about nature with an uncanny accuracy. The agitated, spiritual delight which runs rampant in my soul is recorded this way. Each thread winds its way from shape to shape, line to line, taking note of every last detail. As I do in actuality, I do in my weaving; cherish the most minute, strive to capture the most elusive.
When I experience otherworldly beauty in the natural environment, my spirit dances. When I am finished with the tapestry, the dance will live forever. The spirit has been made visible."
