I consider my all my work to be works in lace. I mean this sculpturally, abstractly and materially, whether I combine lace fabric with resin to create dimensional sculpture or write layer upon layer of cursive text to create portraiture with a lace-like effect or use a sewing machine as a drawing tool to stitch pictorial lace.
In its construction, I see more than kitsch doilies or superficial decoration.Lace represents countless individual threads intertwined to create interdependent networks with the nuance of connection shaping endless possibilities of pattern. As broad as this cultural metaphor might be, lace also represents the intimate and delicate, as well as the domestic and historic traditions in handcraft.
My work has always been grounded in this nature of dichotomy and the oscillating exchange that occurs by combining dissimilar media and processes is an expression of the desire for and in search of balance in body, mind, and action.
