|My artwork about color and superheroes is a narrative of my convictions, conduct, and courage for acceptance, inclusion, and identity. I have been working with computers as a fine art and interactive medium for over twenty-seven years and a fiber artist since I was 3. This mergence of techniques lends itself to sculptural assemblages containing elements of computer-enhanced images, transparencies, hand weaving, and found objects. This physical and philosophic combination of computer work and weaving is a family tree of talent and technology. For example, I weave on the loom my grandfather built for my grandmother and a loom was the precursor to the development of the analytical engine and computer.
