Art is all around you. Whether it is man made art or mother nature, our senses are constantly filled with delicious colors, shapes, sizes, textures and combinations of all of these. You have only to open your eyes to feast on a banquet of beauty and inspiration. I draw ideas from everything surrounding me. There are as many magnificent colors in a rusty pipe or a rock covered in moss, as there are in a breathtaking rose. I use fabric for my canvas and thread and fiber as my paint. Educated in Fine Arts and Interior Design, sewing since I was 8yrs old (a verrrry long time ago!), and teaching wearable art for more than a decade, I draw on my technical skills to bring my ideas to life, and put them in a form others can relate to, be inspired by, and hopefully, enjoy.
