I AM A MIXED MEDIA FIBER ARTIST…a Weaver, Dyer, Mark Maker. My mediums are: cloth, yarn, dyes, fabric paint, embroidery threads, and found objects. I am primarily a Sakiori Weaver. This is a process/technique where I use cloth to reconstruct a new piece of cloth. The process involves taking new yardage or old clothes, cutting them in 1/2” to 1” strips, then weaving them instead of yarn. The Japanese call this method Sakiori. The name Sakiori means: saki – rag to rip or tear and “ori” - to weave. I then embellish this woven canvas with other mediums.


I was born in Asheville, NC and grew up in the Western North Carolina mountains. After High School I moved to Jacksonville Beach, FL, where I lived, married, and raised a family for 30 years. After the last child graduated I moved back to Asheville. I retired early and went back to school to finish my degree. I wanted to be an “artist” since I was a little girl. In 2005 I enrolled into the Professional Crafts Program in Textiles at Haywood Community College just outside Asheville. I studied all aspects of textiles. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2007.

I am currently a full time Mixed-media Fiber Artist working from my home studio.
