About Us

My fiber artwork celebrates texture, color and the myriad possibilities fiber offers to “paint” an image using fresh and unusual techniques. I use free-motion machine embroidery, bobbin embroidery, needle-felting and silk-painting to create my paintings in fiber. I explore the effects of layering fabrics, threads and yarns in order to create depth, rich color and texture in both my stitched paintings and collages.

One body of work combines my interest in gardening and garden imagery with free-motion machine embroidery. My fascination with layers, includes layering threads and yarns to create depth, rich color and texture. Movement and flow of color play an important role in my work, as do shadows and reflections.

My most recent work combines needle-felting with free-motion machine embroidery. Landscapes, which are frequently based on places I have been fortunate enough to encounter in my travels, are created from layers of richly colored silk with stitched details.

Abstract images often feature bold patterns, subtle color changes and striking color combinations.

Many of my favorite pieces are ones I have created especially for individual clients. I welcome commissions (both landscapes and abstracts) and the opportunity to be inspired by clients’ special spaces.
