Historical Context:
I love the challenge of different mediums. It is my ultimate artistic experience. I like being different and feel it important to experiment and grow. I enjoy my photo imagery with transparencies (my answer to computer art). I am stimulated with my explorations on bark papers, searching and developing nature's gift. I am currently investigating a new technique which involves sculpture applied to a delicate oriental paper and stitchery as a way to build up a more sculpture like surface. I feel I've come full circle as I began stitching before the age of eight.
