I work in a very process oriented way. For me, the process of making the art is bound up with the meaning of the art in inexplicable ways... to take a day to weave a leaf is in itself a statement about leaves. Many of the techniques I use are part of the soul of the culture where they originated. I am honored and privileged to be able to engage them in my art making. I believe the art of making objects is about more than just concept and imagery. Techniques and processes which take years to master, honor what it means to be human, and are as integral to my work as the content.
