"The creative person is always creating even when there are no tools in her hands.”
- Buffy Sainte-Marie
I practice mixed-media textile techniques that include thread-sketching, painting, block printing on fabric and paper. These techniques create a plethora of work from one of a kind garments and accessories, hand-bound books, collage, and whatever else I'm inspired to create.
I experiment with ideas in my head for a while before I settle down to make what’s there. I can never keep up with my ideas, but they’re always waiting for when they’re ready to happen.
I teach regularly at summer camps, local businesses, and through private tutoring. I take time to learn a student’s goals and abilities. I then make every attempt to empower and support them on their path.
I support my art and teaching practice as a bookkeeper working for various non-profit organizations. Often, folks tell me that I’m lucky or have a great sense of balance. Neither of those apply, I made different choices - that is all.
