The creative possibilities inherent in hand-knitting
have always intrigued me. Needle size, yarn weight and mathematical
calculations dictate the outcome of a repetitive flow of continuous
knots. Simple tools and complex stitch arrangements result in a
delicate and rhythmic dance. I strive to create pieces that maximize
the combination of a few basic elements to achieve unexpectedly
expressive sculptural forms.
The works are rooted in tradition but have a modern
sensibility. Each side and every edge is carefully crafted to play
off the textures. I embrace the natural possibilities of the materials.
Being aware of their intrinsic qualities is critical to allowing
them to live and breathe. I endeavor to ensure the materials exhibit
their natural characteristics while filling every space with thought,
interest and expression.
