My art is powered by my imagination. Typically my improvised approach to creating lands me in a hole that I have to skillfully dig myself out of, which makes for a great project. For the past two years I have been exploring needlepoint. The building management where I live was replacing balcony doors to a few apartments, and as a result people were throwing away their old screen doors. I collected the screen doors and started to needlepoint them. The Arts and Crafts movement has influenced my exploration and has led me to investigate the importance of handmade craft.
