My work straddles the space between chance and intention. I print my fabric on a gelatin plate using plants I find on my walks or packaging repurposed from the grocery store. I layer the images responding to whatever is already on my fabric. When the printing is done I lay out my fabrics on the floor and ideas begin to percolate. Last year climate change and pollution dominated my thoughts whether melting sea ice or seas filled with plastic. This year the waste produced by Covid-19 has made its way into my work. I don’t think in terms of narrative or illustration, but rather through the emotional impact of shape, color and texture. I hope people react to my quilts on a visceral level.
