a lifelong love of fiber

my story

My Background

My interest in fiber began early, when at five I fashioned a needle and thread from a bobby pin and a piece of string in order to repair the tattered edges of a favorite childhood blanket.  I've since costumed plays, designed and manufactured garments, and print much of the fabric I use in my art pieces.  Many of these designs are now available to the public from this great on-demand print site below!

My Medium

I use a variety of surface design materials and techniques including stitch, Thermofax screens, mono prints, hand-carved stamps and stencils, paint, dye, ink, resist and discharge medium.

My Inspiration

My work is inspired by nature's color and line.  I am intrigued by negative space and texture and seek to create layers of interest using materials often discarded as a way of honoring the whole.
