I am drawn to fabric, to its inherent qualities of saturated color, textural luminosity, and its invitation to be touched. Fabric reflects, captures, and interacts with light in a way that no paint can. I choose to create paintings with fabric because it feels honest: clean lines are formed between color through the process of being sewn together, rather than through the use of an artificial barrier like tape. By manipulating fabric and pulling it taut, seam lines shift and stretch, revealing their final placement only once the painting is finished.
I am represented by Imlay Gallery in Montclair, New Jersey, and more of my work can be seen on their artsy page.
