I especially love working with vintage laces and fabrics, incorporating
vintage quotes, prints, and poetry from my vast collection of antique
books and magazines into my artwork. I find most of my inspiration in the touch, smell
and look of past treasures I can breath new life into. Love and
attention to detail goes into each and every piece I create.
Just a little background: As a girl, I started collecting old lace,
buttons and antique books and magazines. Through the years, I have used
that passion in a variety of ways -- from costuming and acting in
theater -- to writing and storytelling and all kinds of artwork. I
laughingly tell people I need a feminine diversion, and my variety of
interests have helped supply that -- I have 6 sons (no daughter).
