"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.
