“I work as a Fiber Artist in Hand weaving, Art Quilting, Fabric dyeing and painting.  I believe Art is a powerful communicator; I use texture, color, design, emotion and feelings to convey my abstract expressionistic style.  I love creating wall hangings with bold colors that draw you in with perspective and dimension.  I enjoy sharing with children and adults, encouraging creativity, form and good design.  I feel Art is an excellent vehicle for social and environmental change especially when it shows light on our world, relationships and problems.”
