Art is my therapy. I become lost in the creative process –not necessarily the project du jour; in fact, the process triggers marvelous new ideas. As I work I often find myself meditating on that next design.
I’ve worked in many different mediums from charcoal and pencil to wire, I find it is fiber art that is the constant – combining and embellishing handmade papers and textiles with threads, beads, and needlework. While I continue to create tactile pieces, I have recently began exploring creative possibilities using photography and digital images in my work.
As an artist, I exhibit my work in shows and galleries. Many pieces have been published in various magazines in the US and Great Britain. I have also designed prototypes and trade show samples for manufacturers including the original prototype for the Avion Bag for PenelopeBags.com.
In the process of designing for publication, I began to write. My most recent publication is "The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Backyard Adventures". In addition to numerous articles, I am author of "Paper Plus", co-authored of "Beautiful Wedding Crafts", and contributed to "The Unofficial Guide to the Southeast with Kids".
I live in Florida with my very large dog, Tucker, and my Indian cat Cricket where I enjoy gardening, reading, and backyard adventures.
