I have been expressing myself through the medium of loom knitting for almost four decades. My work is in numerous private collections as well as museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
My coats and cardigans integrate a complex system of color, shape and texture. They often incorporate images or typeface and themes from popular culture, such as song titles, poetic verse and literary passages. My most recognizable garments are pieces based upon geometric progressions of colored squares. My love of New York is represented by several homages. The ever popular "taxi" series of sweaters, scarves and hats can be espied on proud owners all over the city, as soon as the first chill of Autumn is felt in the air.
Over the past three decades my output has become increasingly complex, due to both an evolving artistic sensibility and the technological progress in the loom-knitting field. My connection to modern art movements such as Constructivism and Color Field Painting becomes more apparent with the passage of time.
Symmetry, Proportion, Modularity, Harmony, and Rhythm are concepts which drive me to create.
