I am a professional costume designer with more than 25 years experience. It has been through my work in the fabric arts that I discovered a passion for painting on silk.
Although I find inspiration in everything around me, the main body of my work is inspired by the color and patterns of butterfly wings.
There is an element of spontaneity in the process I use when applying color and pattern with dye onto the texture of silk chiffon. Every piece is exciting and original!
I enjoy sharing my studio work through art fairs, teaching classes and private studio sessions.
I received a B.A. from the University of Alaska, Anchorage and a Master of Fine Arts from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
