My art explores humanist themes, primarily in two areas of interest: people growing old and movement of people between cultures. After 26 years in Europe and Asia, I returned to America and embarked on an exploration and comparison of my new natural surroundings and the urban spaces I was familiar with overseas. I build layered, stitched artworks from my photographs, drawings, writings, and memories. Often worked in a minimal palette, each work begins with blank white or black cloth that I alter with dye, discharge, ink, and paint.  I use design software to develop images for printing. My process is weighted to designing and preparing content and cloth before stitching together.
