Why nature appears in my Art!

Abstracting the natural world often appears in my fiber sculptures and hangings. I believe my connection to nature started in my childhood, nature was as a refuge...a way to escape the chaos and emotional confusion living with my family dynamics. I often sought out solitude in the woods, along side a lake bank, or up a tree! I distinctly remember setting up a home on a rocky bluff edge! In my child make-believe mind, each level, nook, and cranny represented a room in my peaceful home. I found much solace, acceptance, connection to the forms, smells, colors, and textures. Nature provides much solace and acceptance for me and this connection is expressed in my art.
