The thread linking all the parts of my work is my affection for the fragment. I feel drawn to bits and pieces that have lost their connection to their original form or function; the strange and yet familiar. The idea of weaving new songs from old, of traces and fragments coalescing into a new whole, has been my companion as I make my work.
