I am a fiberartist, who has written 4 books on my techniques. I lecture and teach nationally.
I want my art to spark the imagination of the people who view them ...to help them see the world in new ways...to sing with color - and above all, to be pleasing to the eye.
I am a Fiber artist. I use the world around me for color inspiration, my fabrics as my paints, my quilt surfaces as my canvas. I use both commercial fabrics, and fabrics that I either manipulate, paint and/or overdye. As and added feature I heavily machine quilt the surface to add texture.
Some of the techniques I use: deconstructive silk screening with thickened dyes, fabric painting, Thermofax stenciling,
stamping and many more.
I also machine quilt extensively and often use hand embroidery and beading.
These are the four books I wrote about my various techniques:
