I work in a variety of media, but loop them back together into performance art pieces for either solo or group performances. Frequently these performances incorporate my linocut monoprints on fabric in the form of banners, scrolls or dishtowels. Often self-invented musical instruments are part of the event.
During the installation I had at the DeCordova in 2008 as part of the Annual Exhibition I heard that the curatorial team were calling me a “fiber performance artist” which I think is a perfectly dandy one-phrase term for what I do.
