My practice has recently been focused on the cross-overs between ecology, community and textile art. I am interested in processes, the materials which we use and how we relate to them, and how creation can bring people together through shared and diverse interests and know-how. Creating is an active and vital relationship with what is; with each other, our environment, and what is going on inside of us. It is necessarily on the edge of the known but also a realization of communion. For me, whether drawing, weaving, experimenting with natural dyes, or simply observing, this active relationship with something true can be meditative, and feels more necessary than ever. I hope in my journey as an artist to discover this again and again, within myself and with others, always new, always learning.
