My woven and coiled baskets provide the structure for my imagery which floats across the surface .The translucence of the silk allows investigation of the basket underneath. I employ multiple techniques to merge layers of silk gauze, wool, surface embroidery and hand woven tapestry .My challenge is the seamless integration of surface and form.
I hope my work evokes a sense of place and offers a connection to the natural world.
