TEXTURE, PATTERN, AND COLOR ARE THE BASIS OF MY FIBER WORK.  THE COMPLEXITY OF PLACEMENT AS WELL AS INTERACTION OF MATERIALS DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OF THE WORK.   AFTER CAREFUL STUDY OF THE COMPONENTS  I INCORPORATE THEM INTO MY PIECE FOR OVERALL CONTINUITY.   DESIGN AND COMPOSITION ARE A REFLECTION OF MY MOOD AT THAT TIME AND EACH PIECE IS WORKED INDIVIDUALLY THROUGH COMPLETION.  AN INTELLECTUAL STATEMENT IS NOT THE RESULT  I STRIVE TO MAKE,  BUT RATHER A VISUAL EXPERIENCE – WHIMSICAL OR BEAUTIFUL  OR NOT!  MY WORK IS WHAT IT IS.
