Welcome to the Southern Highland Craft Guild
Since 1930, artists from Maryland to Alabama have come together to create a network and market for mountain craftspeople. Today, Guild membership stands at more than 900 artisans selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.

My artwork is made of layers of hand-dyed silk, linen and cotton. Shibori techniques create surface pattern, while machine quilting and cutting through to underlying layers make complex textures. Raw edges reveal the integrity of woven cloth and imply that these pieces are torn from the larger body of textile arts. Patches and mending stitches speak of thrift and nurturing.
