"I combine my love of textile techniques, fashion design and everyday materials to create works of texture and grace. Necklines, fasteners, ruffles, pleats and decoration of traditional costumes from around the globe and textile patterns inspire me. My obsessive nature draws me to the repetitive looping of knotless netting. One piece informs the next and the cycle repeats. I aim for the viewer to find the finished works both elegant and curious."
