The majority of my work during and up until 2020 focused on hand screen printed fabric, using repeat and random patterning.  I have also used free style embroidery and needlepoint in my work.  In later years I became focused on making usable items, such as napkins, towels and pillows with these fabrics.  The imagery for my work during graduate school and immediately following was sourced from a constantly growing collection of pictograms, usually of hands, instructing how to perform tasks without words.  As I began to travel more and spend time outside the imagery I used in my patterns was usually from photos I had taken on my phone of natural elements.  Regardless of the imagery I am always thinking about color and pattern in my work
