My sewn fabric paintings reference both the tradition of quilt piecing and abstract painting. Using fabric remnants, old clothing, yarn and thread, I construct improvisational patterns of cutout shapes and stitched lines in spontaneous yet formal arrangements. These vibrant geometric paintings explore the potential of nontraditional materials while inviting the viewer to create personal narratives within abstract imagery.
