Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Current Residence: Pennsylvania
I'm on a winding and erratic artistic journey. I did artistic crafts for over 35 years while raising a family. I learned on my own, from books and the occasional demonstration, many traditional crafts — candle-making, wheel-thrown and hand-built ceramics, beading, weaving, rug-braiding, knitting, crochet, quilting, tatting, crewel embroidery, needlepoint, and needle-lace. Oh, I was busy!
Eleven years ago I became particularly interested in collage and at the same time started teaching elementary school art. That occupied me for most of a decade until my school closed and I found myself free for the first time to seriously study drawing and painting. I now take drawing and painting classes at Fleisher Art Memorial and pursue my life-long love affair with color and pattern pattern at Colourlovers.
I display most of my work here. If you are interested in a print that's not for sale, please let me know. I also adapt some of my work as patterns for fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap for sale on Spoonflower.
