“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable” Cezar A. Cruz
An artist’s statement is a moveable feast I don’t relish eating.
My impulse is to disrupt conventions and social conditioning as nothing is as it seems. I use the medium of thread, constructed textiles, needlework, sometimes combined with etchings and silk screen to shun the notion of “women’s work” being of lesser value than other art forms.
The work I make reflects my heritage, the complexity of my life choices and how they interact with circumstances beyond my control. I live on the outskirts observing the edges.
