Artist Statement

I work in tapestry to exploit the tactile medium in forms which give the illusion of depth and monumentality. The woven grid expands into actual layers and drawn depth to suggest crevices and hollows - - spaces which appear deeper than they really are. The tension between real textural substance and pictured illusion gives my work an interest that calls for a second, longer look.
