About the Artist

Artist Bio

  

Nature is the main inspiration for my work. When weaving clothing and accessories I use a variety of yarns and fibers to develop cloth with textures and patterns not found in commercially woven fabric. Ecclesiastical pieces such as stoles, banners, and altar cloths are another facet of my work. I like to experiment with new techniques and often mixe non-traditional materials with yarn to create wall hangings and 3-D forms.


I have been a juried member of Gallery 209 in Savannah, GA, Fiberworks Gallery and The Potomac Fiberarts Gallery in the Torpedo Factory of Alexandria, VA, and Studio Fiberarts at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA. My work has been accepted in juried shows throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, including The Blackrock Arts Center, the Creative Crafts Council, Sweetwater Center for the Arts, The Art League of Alexandria, VA, and The Workhouse Center for the Arts. Teaching is important to me. I have conducted classes in weaving and dyework at Armstrong Atlantic State University and also for The Blue Ridge Fiber Guild, The Weavers Guild of Greater Baltimore, The Piedmont Fiber Guild, and other groups throughout the southeast. I offer a variety of workshops as well as private & small group lessons.
