My ongoing series of work titled “INSIDE OUT” examines origins, connections and lifelines. I use my interest in textile structures, Japanese aesthetic, and natural forms to build imagery derived from trees, labyrinths, veins, knots, skeins, Japanese Shimenawa sacred ropes and Incan quipu to suggest strength, vitality, continuum, nourishment, and ancestral links.
