As an intuitively curious person, I am interested in our relationship with the natural world and in exploring the sense of awe we feel when we recognize our physical selves in its proportions and balance.

I explore this sense of awe through various outlets of creative expression. I make color-driven, layered fiber art and all sorts of painted works that use the Golden Ratio found in nature. Through this I size my work, blend my paint colors and decide the harmonies I will use. In the same way that we recognize ourselves in nature, my intention is that the result will feel familiar and therefore comforting because we see ourselves in it through those same proportions.
