I work in series, which includes woven paintings and prints. The creative springboards for these are elements of quilts, hides and indigenous textiles. The bamboo "Power Poles" and sculptures, my most recent series, are paintings in the round that I embellish with color, wax, copper, leather, twine and burned-in patterns.

My art choices and worldviews have been inspired by travel. Through travel, I seek influences, cultural centers, energies, new terrain and the power of both the spoken and unspoken. The magic of the Southwest United States, Brazil, Haiti and West Africa has penetrated my work. Southern California, home for thirty years, has also had an indelible impact and the colors and rhythms of the Pacific Rim continue to infiltrate.
