I'm a self-taught studio artist. I create 2-D Textile and Mixed Media art. My work draws from a history as an Oregon gallery owner, twenty-five years as a weaver and clothing designer in Michigan, explorations in clay and paper making as well as teaching enrichment classes and running weaving retreats. My current body of work Sophisticated Whimsy is a romp through my imagination. It involves hand painted cloth that has been cut, frayed and layered with stitching and specialty threads.
