I must be making my own universe/out of discards. Alice Notley, Mysteries of Small Houses

The shapes of human stories influence my work. I am working toward a visual poetic, a pre-narrative construction through material exploration. Using found fabric, paint, photographic material, stained rags and other domestic detritus, I am subverting and reclaiming craft, assembling a interpretation of events, making my own universe.
