Artist's Statement

In the last few years I have focused on making sculpture. I cut out forms in canvas then stuff and sew the forms together. These stuffed, sewn forms are either stitched using different colors of thread or covered with colors of fabric. The work is figurative, influenced by abstract art, sometimes humorous and often political. The subject matter is taken from personal thoughts, experiences in my life and reactions to political events around the world.
