    About The Work

    My Thread Drawings are constructions of the imagination informed by minimalism, color and texture.  Layers of french knots constructed from thin sewing thread are built up until subtle dimension is achieved.  I work on these until the thread takes form, permeating the paper without destroying it.  I enjoy the challenge of making a drawing using the thread as a sculptural medium. 

    These Thread Drawings are made slowly, enabling me to become lost in the process of making.  Each stitch and knot is made with precision accounting for the delicate nature of the paper and the desired result of the primary surface.  The unexpected surprise is what occurs on the back.  As considered as the front surface is, the back of these works reveal an unexpected pattern made without intention.  Therefore, each Thread drawing is really two works on one surface.
