As an artist and craftsperson I love to create rich and unique fiber art/mixed media wallhangings, jewellery, handmade books and journals. My fine art textile pieces are often created with an abstract flair inspired by themes of nature and the human spirit. I started out with oil painting and pencil drawing as a young adult and later, made a complete switch to traditional quilting. My first quilt was made entirely by hand and took one and a half years to complete. I don’t make as many traditional quilts anymore, although I do appreciate them. My goal is to develop my use of fabric as an artisitic medium equal to that of of any other established medium. I’m always redefining my personal style and looking to transform my work in new and exciting ways.
