Gallery I: Statement
I am immersed in the rural Canadian landscape where water plays a vital part. A major recurring theme in my work centres around personal experiences with the prairie landscape and how environmental changes impact the climate around us. The body of water I overlook throughout the year offers boundless opportunities of exploration. As a keen landscape photographer I guide the camera to capture specific moods.
My ultimate goal in this body of work is to invent my own language in capturing the qualities of water in its liquid and solid states. My primary chosen medium is fabric. Woven and non-woven structures provide me with characteristics that are malleable and responsive to manipulation with threads by hand and machine. To capture the reflective qualities of water and ice I experiment with man-made materials including plastics.

Gallery II: Statement
“Elemental Exploration” (NEW!)
This series was inspired by the quote by Kin Lee Kho “With experimentation comes surprise and discovery.”
I gathered ancient materials, silk. Next I chose various basic geometric forms and combining these with mathemetical prime numbers a new body of work emerged. (Please note: This is just the beginning! More pieces are under construction.)
