| I am an artist that works with fabric, thread, and surface design techniques to create my art. I began my art career in 1996 and discovered the pleasure of working with cloth, paint, dye, and thread. My interest in the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi strongly influences my work. I have an extensive background in surface design and teach as well as exhibit my work nationally and internationally. My art is in both private and public collections. I maintain a studio at The Starline Gallery in Harvard, IL.
