My mother used to tell me that when I was a very little girl I loved to run the satin edge of the blanket through my fingers and toes to feel the smooth, cool texture. As I got older, I would work with satin ribbon, make rosettes and sew them onto a wider ribbon and sell them as headbands. By the time I was 10 I was making potholders in varied colors and designs and selling them. I still use some of those potholders today.

This early start with fabrics and color developed in later years into a love of textiles and design which led me to a degree in Education and teaching Home Economics. My love for textiles and design was further enhanced and enriched when I learned how to weave.

My technical and creative endeavors in the field of weaving and fiber art have been guided and nurtured by a strong involvement in the guild system. Working with fiber art has offered me an opportunity to always learn something new.

My work is exhibited in fine craft shows, community art centers, and fine craft galleries. It has received awards at various exhibits and shows. I am a Juried Member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.

I consider myself fortunate to be able to work at something I love and hope that my work gives pleasure and enjoyment to those who wear it.

 

Statement

My textile work is a spectrum of color. I strive for an impressionistic feel as I blend the colors of the yarns in such a way as to lead the viewer, upon first impression, to see only a solid color. Upon closer inspection a whole array of colors are revealed. Each piece is designed so that there is movement of color. It is never static or flat. My love of color has lead me to explore the color principles of hue, value, and intensity in many and varied ways as I work with the complexity of crossing smooth and textured yarns in the warp and weft.

    I purchased one of your crop tops today at the Guilford Handicrafts center (for myself!). I am amazed at the workmanship and the colors and knowing it was hand woven means a lot to me. Just beautiful. It’s rare nowadays that something catches my eye and I just have to have it, but your absolutely lovely work fits the bill. Thank you.
