I strive to create pieces with spectrum connections to what inspires me, allowing my pieces to become visual evidence of the middle ground between black/white, hard/ soft and smooth/rough. These polarizing components add visual interest for me to play with in creating each piece. The visible spectrum consists of a broad range of colors but in my latest work I chosen to focus on only four of those colors: black, white, grey and gold. I have made a conscious decision to eliminate color to emphasize shape, line and texture. Craving concrete forms, metal is an obvious medium for someone who loves fire. I can cut score and solder shapes that will act as a cradle for my soft pliable felted studies. By framing these textile creations I can control how they are perceived almost making them look like precious stones in an environment that is expected with an unexpected material.
