I am a textile artist specializing in fabric landscapes. Fabric manipulation techniques create depth and texture in my work. I am experimenting with ideas that lift the texture elements of my designs off the surface to create dimension.
Recently, I have been working from photographs to achieve realistic designs. I love to discover different ways of combining and manipulating fabrics and other fibers to translate the textures I see in the natural world into fiber art works. Unusual fabrics and yarns found in thrift stores and yard sales expand my fabric stash into a large, varied source of supplies which stretches my imagination and expands my vision for fiber art.
