Originally trained as both sculptor and architect, I found my way to fabric and thread as a way of healing in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. After a decade stitching my monumental ‘White Flags’ project – 193 national flags rendered entirely in white thread on white fabric – I turned my attention exclusively to digital embroidery. Exploring the medium with an almost scientific rigor, I developed and refined a unique method of creating form by manipulating light over differently hatched angles of embroidered thread.
These articulated patterns of light – activated by a viewer’s motion – provide the foundation upon which I now draw, collage, paint, and even sculpt, three-dimensional architectural experiences.
