Unique experiences have created a fascinating world of color and design for me as I implement my impressions through the medium of fiber. As an artist I seek thought provoking ways to integrate color, pattern, and design. I am especially interested in patterns in nature and shades of color, taking those patterns and seeing how they are used in architecture and object design. I am constantly enjoying new inspirations and new experiences. Working with hand-dyed fibers I enjoy manipulating fibers for dimension complemented with surface design techniques and mixed-media. Freeform knitting and unique art quilts are being enhanced with batik, hand embroidery, and beading.  My travels throughout the world have illustrated the synchronicity between different countries and cultures with similar approaches to fiber, continents apart and separated by centuries. I am most intrigued by that historical and contemporary context.
