Hello. I am a person currently living in Philadelphia, PA, USA. In my crochet work and solo dancing I explore ongoingness and flow. My practices are dually grounded in formal techniques and free improvisation. I respect tradition, yet I recognize that life requires the ability to make decisions appropriate to each fresh moment. Structure is a tool for ongoing change and development. Dissolution is part of evolution. New forms arise from repetition and recursiveness.
I have two separate but related streams of creative endeavor and I hope to continue to keep evolving in both. One is dance: I have identified as a dancer since childhood. My dancing has transformed over the last 40 years from the discipline of ballet and modern techniques into the open space of freeform solo improvisation; in this practice I have cultivated relationships with many musicians and sound artists who also practice improvisational performance. The second area of my practice is crochet. I have been making things with my hands, also since childhood, and over the last five years I have developed a style of doily crochet that reflects my spontaneous dance process and balances dualities such as nature/culture and form/flow.
