   Her media included scraps of fabric, wood, string, wire, pieces from children’s games, printed labels and other discarded items – things that she said felt familiar.She was inspired by the art of Native Americans and Africa, Tantric art, illuminated pages of the Koran, and Persian miniatures.  She said she gathered her materials with great care…”The reason I use old cloth and boxes is that new materials lack the sentiment of the old, and seem too dry in an emotional sense.”

"I'm very fond of this phrase: 'Collage is not a refuge for the compositionally disabled.' If you put together the pieces in a really powerful way, I think you'll let a thousand discrepancies bloom."
