About Me

about me

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.
