A study of alchemy, color symbolism, and structure inspire my abstract works in ink and thread, with elements of my heritage informing each piece by way of hand-threading and a nod to the Japanese practice of kintsugi. My artwork, though done on paper, strives to capture 3D elements by way of texture building, hand-embroidery, and hand-cut details. Painting has become like a ritual for me, with the outcome intentionally unpredictable and spontaneous. Living with multiple sclerosis has left an indelible mark on my practice; I create as I am able and as long as it sparks relaxation, wonder, and joy.
