i use my own paintings as grounding points, analyzing each stoke. finding new paths and emotion within the works. counting. touching. using my senses to bring me back down to earth. my favorite compliment was hearing that a collector uses my art to meditate, and since then i have been focusing on fueling my fiber works with a handful of different grounding points to offer a therapeutic experience within the artistic structure.
