My work explores and manipulates natural and synthetic fibers: fabric, thread, cord, string, yarn, wool, ribbon, silk, felt…anything fiber. While I never follow a blueprint or set of rules, my process generally involves machine stitching, hand stitching, layering, fusing, cutting, melting, burning, and painting; in no particular order! Creating texture to generate movement in my pieces is important to me. I want the surface of my work to invite the viewer’s eyes to travel over it; pull them in for a closer look; then surprise them with more details not seen from a couple steps back.

Hendersonville
NC

Most of my life I lived in sunny southern California. I grew up going to the beach, making art, and loving the Dodgers. After attending ArtCenter College of Design I worked in illustration & graphic design, married a wonderful man and we raised two sons; along the way I started quilt making. In 2005 we moved to beautiful, tree-filled western NC. Since living here, my quilting and a love of mixed media led me to my current work in mixed-fiber art. I am passionate about it and happily work full time out of my home studio, wishing for more hours in a day!
