New interview up with Voyage Houston Magazine!
“I treat the fibers as I would paint, or as a drawing tool. Different fibers can create different hues and values… Fibers like wool can make a denser section of color and then disperse out, creating a softer, lighter gesture and giving me more room to interpret and respond. The density of the fibers can act like a shaded color…or tightly wound threads can make a distinct, crisp mark.”
“The fibers take on interesting shapes, and sometimes the appearance of creatures lurk within the imagery. I’m very interested in this idea of pareidolia, seeing recognizable imagery in something that is abstract, and accentuating what I discover in the fibers.”
“Spending every day being creative can be a challenge, but it is vital to keeping our creative muscles strong and active. Creativity is kind of like a sport in that way; you have to practice every day in order to push past your threshold and continue to improve.”
