ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCE

2000 and 2001

Participated in two etching workshops at Crown Point Press, San Francisco in which I developed experimental prints used in “THE THREADS PROJECT”.

2001-2007

Created an extensive body of work called “THE THREADS PROJECT” in which I attempted to bridge my interest and experience in both fine art and craft processes and materials, addressing the ongoing contemporary dialogue on this subject.

2009

Wrote and published What The Surface Reveals-The Threads Project 2001-2007 , a book documenting this project. Work includes drawings, paintings, etchings, and experimental prints, textiles, sculpture, digital drawing and mixed-media pieces.
