"The shapes I use come from the loom, my body, history, from use and reuse.  Like the way a memory becomes a story, through unconscious sifting and longing.  Meaning rises as the shape of your hands, or light through the trees.  Stories are woven from these fragments.  They have their own aim in mind:  to warn, to revel, to end.

Things To Say At Night pursues darkness.  At night, edges soften, lines are crossed, secrets flow.  Images appear in shadows.  Dreams unwind the day’s constant turning.  Eternally bound and distinct, they pour their contents from one glass to the other, altering the clear shape of thought.  As apparent clarity falls deeper into shadow, these works seek night as the equal half of day.
