A visual language of stitched marks
Merging textile techniques with painting, my work combines the stitched line and painting on paper to blur the edge between macro and micro. Depicting real and imagined landscapes filtered through memory, referencing map theory and navigational charts, these are monumental works on an intimate scale, abstract details of personal geography.

Natural Inspiration

A sense of place, real and imagined
Inspiration comes from the prairie skies, river-flanked woodlands, and gentle topography of my native Illinois.
