Truly Touching

“I believe in making the most of my hands, therefore I weave, knit or embroider. Being able to touch is very important to me and I love tactile items. I always encourage people to touch my work. I intertwine my energy of recycling/reusing with emotions, experiences, observations and conversations. Majority of the items I use, are gathered from various places, situations and people.

My theory is, every discarded item has another use before it gets tossed into our over flowing landfills. With that theory, I see it as my responsibility to see items are reused, just as items are recycled in the blue bins. Depending in the mood or mode I am in, I’ll weave, knit or embroider just about anything. I see many different possibilities in the future. I also, see many different possibilities in one item.”
