Microscopic images of water-borne organisms have inspired my artwork. These organisms have an organic chaos of elements of beauty, complexities and fragilities. Through the use of different fiber techniques I transform these images into organic abstractions. There is a randomness that is in nature that for me allows my exploration into creating large-scale installations that start from those images of microscopic organisms.
