I have recently finished three years of extra-mural study with The Learning Connexion in Wellington, New Zealand. My most recent mentor has been Susan Knaap. I have appreciated her speaking with me about art & creativity matters & often think about our conversations as I'm crossing the railway bridge on my way to work.

The use of sewing patterns in all their glory is an important element that has emerged in my work & Susan has been pivotal in my initial understanding of their symbolism.
