Since 2013, I have crafted small, armature-based fabric figures. I am intrigued by the spontaneity of gesture the underwire imposes, the interplay of fabric patterns on the surface, and the changing effects of embellishment. I use polymer clay to create masks, headdresses, and, in the case of the horses, saddles and tails. Masks as a means of revealing rather than concealing the spirit of these figures fascinate and challenge me.
