“I divide my studio time between embroidery and felt-making. I look at nature – plant forms, geometry, colors, cell structures, bones, antlers, wings – to see the underlying connections that these things have in common.
My intricate embroideries of fruits, vegetables and natural forms are made up of thousands of tiny French knots, most are smaller than a poppy seed. Unlike paint that can be blended, embroidery floss is a fixed color. I sometimes use unusual colors next to each other to make something pop or recede or define a shape or space making each biomorphic shape its own world of color.”
