I have always been drawn to tapestries from the past. That influence can be seen in my use of the woven techniques that were developed in the medieval tapestries of Europe. My most recent work references historical textiles more directly through the incorporation of borrowed patterns, motifs and/or details. The excerpts are combined with each other, and with other image sources, such as drawings or photographs, to produce a layered image in which the different components are merged together into one blended image. I create the layered and fused images with Photoshop.
