Artist Statement

My work captures moments in everyday life–a memory, a dream, or a glimpse of nature, using media associated with home and homemaking. Yarn, fabric, buttons, and stitching seem insignificant in our culture of enormity. But great accomplishment is built from seemingly insignificant pieces, in small steps, by people who go to work every day and cook and clean and raise children and do many important things that will never make them famous. I record moments of everyday life, because everyday life is what most of us live, and it is honorable and worthy of remembering.
