BURST cotton, silk, wool, copper I create my totems using materials traditionally found in fiber art and marrying them with unconventional materials. My vision is a departure from traditional fiber works while employing some traditional methods. Starting with a cylindrical canvas and creating a tapestry of fiber and other elements that I find interesting. Metals, bark, insect parts, papers, etc. have been used in addition to traditional fibers to bring my vision to life. Burst was inspired by the feeling when I realize my vision. I have a constant buzzing in my brain from concept to completion. The burst is the feeling of calm and satisfaction at meeting my creative challenge.
