About Me


Artist Statement

In studying microscopic imagery, I try to find poetic meaning in everyday organisms and often these are framed in a way that would go unnoticed in their original context. I also incorporate my Cajun heritage with sewing and creating textiles that have more intricate meaning than what is seen on the surface. The pieces are not only unique in their texture and color but also by the way the light passes through the threads to cast shadows on the wall. The fibers in the microscopic structure are woven together much like fabric and sometimes when looking at images, it is difficult to tell the two apart. I display my pieces in a multi-layered method to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work. The final works illustrate the intricacy of the organic mesh which makes up our landscape in South Louisiana. I am hoping to shed light on the beauty of nature, on a cellular level. Many of the microscopic images truly reflect the source and show how even at its core, nature stays true to its purpose. There is beauty in the most simple and the mostly unseen world we live in, it just takes the vision to share it with others.
