“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 fell in love with fiber in 1975 when I took two semesters of an elective called Weaving.  The feel and colors of the fiber set off a spark in me.  I could spend a lifetime and never experience all of its depths.

I am a “rag”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.”
