Some of my fondest memories from childhood are of my mother and grandmother quilting, sewing, crocheting, cross-stitching, etc. Growing up surrounded by fiber, color, texture and craftsmanship ensured my love of craft and all that it entails.
Not surprisingly, I grew up to be a fiber artist. Basketry was my first love. Then I took a workshop from quilt artist Dorothy Caldwell on mark making with fiber and it was like someone flipped a switch. I suddenly began seeing finished pieces that combine fiber, text, marks, sewing, photos, etc.
Currently, I am enjoying playing and experimenting with various surface design and mark making techniques to create art cloth.
