I am mixed media artist with
a passion for quilting, surface design, and book making. I enjoy
working with both paper and fabric and it’s the exploration of finding
and discovering new ways to manipulate and embellish them that drive me
into the studio and inspire me every day.
I work very intuitively in the studio usually designing as I go
letting the materials I’m working with guide the process. I enjoy
working in 3D and creating sculptural objects, such as boxes or vases,
or functional ones like journals and sketchbooks. The challenge of
taking a flat surface created with paper, fabric or a combination of
both and giving it form to stand on its own is incredibly exciting to
My goal has never been to create a perfect and flawless item. It is
to create a piece that excites the viewers eyes when they look at it,
makes them wonder when they hold it in their hands and inspires their
own imagination when they consider how it was created.
