We asked her some questions about her work.
|Night Music I, 2013, mixed media collage, 10 x 10"|
What attracts you to the them?
I love vintage fibers, fabrics, lace and sheet music...I combine these elements with plexi glass, mirrors and mosaic glass to express a ageless quality in my work.
As a collagist, you must have a lot of stuff. Are you Joseph Cornell (organized and tidy) or Francis Bacon (messy)?
I'm both....and am always secure in the knowledge that, within my vast amount of treaures, I know exactly what I need and can always find it...
Tell us about your studio -- where do you create?
I have a studio but prefer working in the sun room in my home...the light is fabulous. I often wake at 3 or 4am and wander into this special place...the quiet yet intense time of day often helps me make dramatic decisions and changes within my work.
How or why is a made by hand, one of a kind art piece important?
It's an intimate conversation with the creator/artist. There is no other way to see deeply into another individual.
What would you like your viewers to take away from their encounter with your artwork?
A sense of completeness...a question answered and a question asked...
