I improvise from a score, a loose set of parameters, to explore variations of pattern, shape, and line. The rhythm of attention unfolds in patchwork through relationships made in the moment. These quilts evolve without a plan and often without a sketch or image in mind. Narratives take shape one commitment at a time.
The bright colors, complexity, lines, and unexpected juxtapositions are influenced by the industrial, graffiti rich, urban neighborhood in East Oakland, CA, where I currently live and work.
