I create my art with colorful yarn, fabric, thread and glass. My work enhances the landscape with whimsical patterns of color that connect us to a happy time and place.
My ancestors were glass blowers and my father was a pattern maker and designer of women’s wear. Our house was always full of projects in process; sewing, quilting, knitting, embroidery, and fabrics of many textures, patterns and colors. I became fascinated with color and pattern at a very early age. For this reason, my work is deeply rooted in these practices.
In my thirties, I experienced a horrific event that could have had a very destructive impact on my life. I chose to not revisit that place. I closed that door and to survive I welcomed the goodness that surrounds me everyday.
I hope my work can open that door to happiness for others, if even for just a brief period of time.
