Featured Artist - March 2015
After a 20-year career as a paralegal, I decided to look elsewhere for sanity and satisfaction. I gave myself one year to find something that would fit me; something that I could do with my hands and that would feed my soul. I knew I liked sketching and doodling but I had no interest in paper as a backdrop; I did not know whether this could be done in fabric but the idea appealed to me so I started to experiment.
I taught myself every single aspect of how to draw on fabric, how to paint it, rust it, dye it,sew it. The first years were spent doing, learning tirelessly; now, fifteen years later, I know exactly what I love to do, how I like to work, and how to do it. My work revolves around painting, printing, sketching, dyeing and stitching.
I have focused exclusively on private commissions for the past 3 years, and for 2015-16 I plan to return to my own personal work and to teaching.
