My art is about color and precision, combinations of colored thread that are changed, fluidly and continuously through meditatively derived transitions. Using a knitting loom and selections from 1800 cones of pre-dyed viscose thread, I create fabrications with 3 or 4 strands of thread at a time, that incorporate limitless ranges of colorations. The finishing touches are sewn and crocheted by hand.
Wearable Art was my earliest inclination with a kimono shape as the recurring design inspiration. Jackets, dresses, pullovers, shawls and scarves are additional shapes added over time.
Influences include the designs of Issey Miyake and Missoni along with the art of Sonia Delaunay. Color inspiration is constant, especially from nature. Artists from the Luminist Movement (Frederick Edwin Church, Albert Bierstadt), the Impressionists (Henri Matisse, Claude Monet), and Modernists (Mark Rothko, Paul Jenkins) have had a major effect on my evolving color sense. Josef Albers is my muse.
A departure from wearables in 2008, was a commissioned 12' x 22' ceiling work for the lobby in a restaurant in Montclair, New Jersey. Made from 275 colors of thread and depicting a sunset seen from a plane, it has been, to date, my Magnum Opus.
