Tell us about yourself!   I create unique, multi-dimensional, and airy textile wall-hangings. As a long time oil painter turned textile artist, I think of my creations as paintings painted with fine linen and silk yarns.  The 1950’s color field painters as well as the 19th century impressionist painters are huge inspirations for this work. My larger artworks are studies in optics and color, while my smaller works are abstract designs that come about like stream-of-conscious thought. One line prompts the next until the design feels complete. Much of my work is created by weaving and layering colorful panels of fine mesh fabric. The resulting work is ethereal, delicately beautiful, and subtly emotive.
