Work in the Janus series is comprised of fabric pieces, embroidery, trapunto and selected "costumes" that have been altered and painted. Each piece (Janus I, Janus II, Janus III and Janus IV) depicts a different stage of passage through life as well as referencing the forces of fire, water, earth and air. Artwork in the Artifactual series combines fabric pieces with inset oil on canvas paintings. These pieces refer to mapping, journey and place.
