I've been on a winding artistic journey, always driven by a tremendous urge to create. I did artistic crafts while raising a family: candle-making, sewing, papier maché, dyeing, spinning, beading, weaving, rug-braiding, knitting, crochet, quilting, tatting, crewel embroidery, needlepoint, appliqué, and needle-lace.|
In midlife I became particularly interested in collage and at the same time used my background in crafts to land a job teaching elementary school art. When my school closed I found myself free at last to seriously pursue art. I studied drawing and painting for three years at Fleisher Art Memorial and continued my self-guided explorations of art and crafts.
My original paintings and drawings are for sale on the Saatchi website; prints and derived works are for sale at Society 6. My digital designs are available at PatternDesigns.com and yard goods — fabric, wrapping paper, and wallpaper — featuring my work can be found at Spoonflower.com
