“My inspiration comes from observing how patterns and textures repeat and layer in nature . I am particularly inspired by the mosses and lichens found in the rain forests of the Pacific Northwest. Using a technique called free-motion machine embroidery, I use the sewing machine as a drawing tool to create abstract images in thread. The work is highly textured and three-dimensional. My work also uses bonded fiber and textiles to create and reference pattern and texture.”
