Inspiration comes from a collection of observations. Watching the constant changes of nature from my studio on a cliff above the Willamette River, provides much of that inspiration. Autumn is especially exciting when the winds are blowing the last colorful leaves that cling tightly to the trees. As they flutter, they watch the race between the colorful, blowing sunset clouds above and the rushing river below. Which force of nature will win? My joy is in watching the race and trying to capture it in textiles.
