Resume:

I love color: the brighter, the better! Light, transparency, and texture are also fascinating to me. Each piece of current work involves at least one of these elements: transparent quilts and fiber art made of organza and other non-traditional materials, unique garments, and colorful art quilts. Dyeing, painting, surface design, knitting, beading, and metalwork have been incorporated into my work. Sewing, painting, and making things have been important to me since childhood and throughout my life. My fiber art is a happy mixture of all three.
