Artist Statement

I love petroglyphs. We have travelled far to see many ancient sites and I am always overwhelmed with a visceral connection to the people, myths, times, symbols and activities depicted in the stone art. I am easily transported back thousands of years. I have created this couple who feel an intimate longing to belong to the cosmos, as do I.


Dyed with rust and botanical materials, stamping, painting, machine quilting.


Cotton, fabric paint.
