I’m a mixed media/textile artist living in my dream in northern Michigan. I create wall art as well as some 3 dimension sculpture using fabrics and fibers as my “paint”. Most of my work is nature themed but I am also intrigued by the human form. My textile background includes clothing construction and home decoration. In the mid 1990s I started making original art dolls which first connected me to other textile artists. Over the past 5 or 6 years I’ve migrated into the “art quilt” world. I dye and screen print my own fabric and combine them with commercial fabrics of all kinds to create visual texture. I also like to include fibers, beads, buttons, stones and other objects when they are integral to the story.
I am a member of the Fiber Artist Coalition, an exhibition group of professional SAQA members, and the Northern Michigan Textile Artists. I am also a member of the Crooked Tree Art Council, the Charlevoix Circle of Arts, and the Jordan River Arts Council.
