The natural environment has always been my lab and has strongly influenced my studio practice.  I am also influenced by my own early childhood, by farms and animals that I grew up with, by the fabrics that surrounded my upbringing, such as ticking and muslin. Currently, this also includes natural materials gathered from my meadow and the bordering tree line. The acts of harvesting, dying and stitching complete a unique practice that connects my work with remembrance that conjures spontaneous memory and allows time for personal contemplation and reflection.
