I use yarn and cotton fabric paired with a contraption called a “tufting gun” to create large-scale soft paintings. The space dividing painters from fiber artists is not as vast as we tend to think. One of the strengths of my work is that it hovers between painting and sculpture, yet it refuses to fit neatly into a category. This new body of work is about unleashing momentum and energy through mark making and color. A formal investigation into how we see and communicate emotion through vision and imagination.
