Divining the mysteries, meanings and nuances of color on cloth propel me to create. My inspiration ranges from my residency on the west coast of Ireland, rich historic textiles, the patterns on pavement, to the layered hues and textures in my garden. My goal is to express, through color and cloth, the deep and sometimes unexpected beauty I find everywhere. Whether for the wall or the body, whether the material linen, silk or wool, my intent to create a well designed and meaningful object is always foremost.
