It is the textures – both visual and tactile – that draw me to metal and to weaving. The feel of metal has always drawn me in, whether wire or sheet, smooth or textured, hammered or woven. And the visual pull of woven metal just never ends for me. I have to get in closer, understand it, and of course, touch it. The relationship of different textures plays a significant role in my work – contrasting and complimentary textures add to the visual and tactile experience.
