Fiber + Color = Layers of Joy. That is the name I chose for my first one-person show. Now I feel that it perfectly describes my philosophy and motivation for creating art. Fiber has always drawn my attention and has become my medium of choice. Fiber can be (1) fabric, whether cotton, silk, rayon or man-made; (2) yarn of cotton, wool, silk, or synthetics; (3) paper; (4) metal mesh or strands; and (5) thread. The choices are endless and endlessly exciting. The textures offer the wonderful tactile experience of fiber art. It draws you in, compels you to touch, and reminds you of past experience or provokes you to consider new ideas. That is what drives me to produce more artwork and try new combinations and techniques. "Layers of Joy" refers to the way I combine fiber and color and in the process feel total joy and satisfaction.
