Fiber/Textile work has been a constant evolving focus in my life. While growing up I had unusual taste in clothing. I was tall and thin, nothing seemed to fit my body or style. This began my love of making, first with my own clothing and then on to sewing costumes for local renaissance festivals and custom clothing for SCA events, weddings, and stage. 


Loving the versatility of fiber/textiles I have explored and attended course work in basket weaving, art history, design and textile techniques both though college courses and workshops. I have worked with many natural mediums to create and discovered the versatility and endless possibilities of wool roving to create garments, and art pieces. The desire to create colors that match my imagination led to explorations in dyeing. Explorations in dyeing then lead to the joy of natural pigment, using plants, mushrooms, and lichen to create color.


With interest in all forms of creating I have worked with clay, metal, and other mediums., More recently I have combined my gathered techniques and materials and have been exploring fiber sculptural art Creating has been a lifelong force in my life
