My vivid memory of landscape strongly influences the patterns that I use in my creative art work. I employ various dots and layering of line and color to create my own personal, abstracted maps of California's landscape and its complex terrain. Using a combination of embroidery and paint on canvas, I work to represent the idea of "home." I create unique symbols to tell my story of California. Initially. The process of making my work is also important. Color, dot size and pathways are chosen and added. Each piece is dyed using primary colors that are over-dyed to create secondary colors.
