“I began exploring textile arts as a child, learning to sew, knit, embroider, quilt, along with other traditional “womanly art forms,” from my mother and grandmothers. I studied Landscape Design in college as I have always been attracted to the contrasts of shape, form and textures in the landscape. I discovered wool painting in 2014 and was excited by the acceptance of my fiber art within the art community. Wool painting uses traditional art methods with a new painting medium and the variety of colors and textures of roving and yarn provide an endless pallet. The newness of this art form is exciting, and I enjoy the challenge of discovering new techniques. I have always been drawn to wild places and wildlife. Nature nurtures my soul, and it is the foundation that I draw inspiration from when creating my paintings. It is my hope to share with others a bit of the joy I that fills my spirit when I am in a place of wild, natural beauty.” I am thrilled that others around the country have found joy in my work and have added my paintings to their collections.
