Artist Statement: Art is beautiful and functional, however, it can also be healing. My work as an artist is predominantly in fibers although I have experience with many other mediums such as ceramic, glass, found object, metal and wood. While I love them all, I am also drawn to the healing properties art holds. Through building and layering, exploring and discovering there is much to learn and share in an art making experience. My own work often represents the path I am on at that particular moment in my life. I like to use recycled materials as a way of taking what seems to be nothing and creating something new. This is not only cost effective but also respectful to our environment. Creating art gives us the opportunity to slow down and enjoy life. I truly love the process and the materials I work with and most of all I love being able to share this with others. The art experience is a gift for us all to enjoy and reap its benefits.
