I gather images from a variety of sources, collaging them together into narratives which express personal, societal and political issues. Images are transferred to cloth by various means: screenprinting, blueprint, and photo transfer. The layering of images and materials add complexity and surface interest. My interest in historical textiles and decorative arts is reflected in the work, particularly in the use of patterning.
