What grabs me are conversations between color and texture, and the drama of pattern in everything I see around me: the wind in the cedar trees below my windows, the Guatemalan and Mexican textiles in my studio drawers, the angels who come to me as I work. I make paintings from textiles and surface-rich original art cloth, stacking up tall stashes of the latter in order to make the former.”
