Exploring the use of various fibers and other mediums in conjunction with cutting edge technology and equipment has allowed me to open the door to my creativity. Coupled with color and design the possibilities are truly endless. My imagination has no boundaries but time!
I use various techniques and am always learning and experimenting with new ways to enhance and embellish my work. I am constantly questing for new ways to do things.
I began sewing as a small child making doll clothes with my grandmother which eventually led to construction of most of my own clothing. In the mid 1990’s I started quilting. I started with the traditional styles and as I grew and educated myself in new techniques I quickly turned to art quilts and mixed media which have no boundaries and are very freeing!
In September, 2006 I exhibited my work in the Upper Arlington, Ohio Arts Festival. Since then, I exhibited at other local galleries in Central Ohio including The Ross Museum and the Art Castle in Delaware and The Works Gallery in Newark.
In 2014 I retired and moved to Savannah Georgia and have exhibited at The Cultural Arts Center/S.P.A.C.E Gallery, Hospice of Savannah, The Jewish Educational Alliance, The Coastal Discovery Museum, Hilton Head and The Art League of Hilton Head. I am a member of the Savannah Art Association and show my work at the Savannah Airport Gallery and I am currently exhibiting at Savannah City Hall and The Savannah Convention and Trade Center. I also participate in The Palmetto Quilt Guild biennial quilt show where I have received several ribbons and awards.
