Artist Statement

 Using pattern as metaphor, my work explores cultural, social, and personal identity in the digital age. Initially, I appropriate image patterns from my work in fabric, and a variety of other sources then reduce them via technology to a simple line drawing. Next, I overlay several images in order to disrupt the individual patterns and suggest one all-embracing identity. As a painter, I value the primacy of color in my work. Because color suggests an inner energy, enhances ties to identity, and strengthens cultural bonds, the combined effect of line and color results in a portrait of the world around us where everything is happening at once.
