"Pink" in the "Altered" series has been darned more then once. A small red re-woven patch resides next to the larger re-woven pink area.

The medium is darned thread in found cloth.

I like the way my eye moves from the darned image back to the edge of the fabric. There is something so suggestive about the way the red threads hover there creating an almost misty edge-- a set of new possibilities extending out beyond the edge of what we know. I appreciate the rewards of deep looking here (thanks to the zoom tool). I wish I could touch what is here.

A seemingly small event can alter ones being, our society, and our physical environment in a very substantial way. This event may simply be deciding to react, or not, to another. These continuous everyday alterations are poetically examined in my work.

Holes are made in the fabric or paper, and then filled with daring or inlay. The fabric/paper is made whole again, and a unified surface is created. The process mimics the act of adaptation. I arrived at this exploration through my own experience of living between cultures, and observing myself assimilating to my new surroundings. The old lives with the new, and a new existence is made.
