Full Artist's statement
I am a writer and an artist who works in fabric, color, and audio. My history as a filmmaker, novelist, and quilter has contributed to the artwork I make now, which encodes experiences with language, the built and natural environment, and mental and emotional processes. I want to enrich people's understanding of their own sensory experiences and encourage investigations of the boundary between what is visible and what is hidden. Using the techniques of quiltmaking, I translate words or feelings into geometric tessellations, while also concealing patterns in what seems like randomness. Through watercolor and colored pencil, I have expanded the symbolic vocabulary I use to document and interpret psychogeographical walks, as well as capture visual concepts and algorithms that verbal methods cannot.
