Sewing as a child, I began a lifelong love of textiles. Using nature as a source of inspiration, my art creations are hand-dyed fiber and cloth. Sometimes adding more color with paint; more often adding further surface design through silk screening, felting, and always stitching. The stitching defines the piece with a high degree of flavor.
My wonderful and supportive husband tolerates spilled beads and a few pins in the rug. Our dogs snatch up cloth scraps from the floor and make a run for attention.
