Fiber Artist, Teacher & Mentor
I love the challenge of capturing the “spirit” of the subjects I choose to depict in my art. Whether it is a person or an animal, each has something to communicate and it usually involves a look, an expression or even a position.
I started to devote more time to my art over the past 15+ years. Every piece of art that I create gives me the opportunity to learn more about the diversity, complexity and addictiveness of using fabric, pigments and stitches to create a statement.
Oftentimes, when people see my art pieces, they are amazed that they are not paintings. From my perspective, they are.
However, instead of just pigment, I utilize a multitude of different fabrics and the dimensionality of quilting to add to and enhance my art. My art stimulates a desire for a closer look and a tactile confirmation that the art includes stitching.
I am on a continuous journey to explore the possibilities of using fiber art to focus attention on the concept or idea I have chosen to represent.
