||As a textile artist, I enjoy traveling with a camera to find subjects I can translate into fabric. I like to render a scene in a realistic yet whimsical way that makes the work smile back at me as I recall the moment I caught the image on film. My current series includes work based on photographs from Santa Fe, Italy, and the South of France.
I am most satisfied with an image when my enthusiasm for the subject shows through. I want to evoke a sense of place for the viewers, who are nonetheless free to imagine their own stories behind the piece. I want the work to smile back at them the way it smiles back at me.
