A California native, I grew up in a family that valued the arts. I’ve been involved in the field of design for the greater part of my life; in textiles, art, botany, floral and landscape design. I was educated at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, receiving a degree in landscape architecture. I practiced as a Landscape Architect for 16 years. Then, on moving to the university town of Davis, California, the arts community beckoned and I painted in acrylic, oils and mixed media for 10 years. I’ve exhibited in more than 50 solo, group and museum exhibits.

 

In early 2015, I began to look around for other media, and again focused on textiles. Skills acquired long ago have been re-kindled.

 

Statement:

 

I create textile art which begins with hand-painted fabrics, and I love the initial process! I begin hand painting on fabrics in the studio, with trips to the clothesline for drying outdoors. Hand-painted cotton and linen are used in art cloth wall hangings, table runners and home décor. Rayon, cotton, silk and wool are hand-painted, then used for wearable art. Hand-painted wool scarves in gauzy, woven wool are one-of-a-kind designs for both women and men.

 

I’m looking for opportunities to show in regional galleries and shows, to sell my textiles in brick-and-mortar stores in addition to my online shop. My hand-painted textiles were juried into four shows in 2015:  “The Art of Fashion”, a national juried wearable art show; an annual gallery show at Blue Line Arts in Roseville, CA.  Additionally, I exhibited in an invitational group show with a well respected sculptor near Napa, CA and the Textiles Bazaar sponsored by the Textile Arts Council, for the Fine Arts Museum (De Young), San Francisco.
