Quilted Paper Milagro DrawingCircus Freak Wall Hanging 2The Ironman
Here is a collection of some of my artwork. These are textile pieces created with several layers of different printing techniques. I also combine sewing, embroidery, and embellishments. The finished piece then gets stretched on to stretcher bars. I usually spend about a year on each piece and are narrative in nature. I typically draw from personal experiences, psychology, and the relationship dynamics that occur between people I have known. From there, I create symbolic characters who typically create lives of their own outside of my realm and cross over into fantasy. You never know where you may encounter the Ironman who is seemingly infallible until he is randomly struck by lightening.
