ABOUT MY WORK: I am very much a mixed-media artist, producing both two and three dimensional work incorporating a variety of materials and techniques. My paintings on paper and canvas are primarily abstract and always convey some sense of an expansive landscape. Bird imagery figures prominently in my sculptural pieces, which are made using old boro fabrics from Japan and mud cloth from Africa, as well as other exotic textiles from around the world. My two dimensional paper pieces use a traditional Korean felting technique called Joomchi, which uses handmade mulberry paper, various dyes, a great deal of water, and physical agitation to fuse multiple layers of paper together. Recently, I have been experimenting with textiles, dyeing and layering them with hand stitching and treating the materials in much the same way as I would paint and canvas in making a painting.
