I am a mixed media collage artist and fabric is my medium of choice. I use commercial and hand dyed fabrics, acrylic inks, ink pencils and crayons, pens, digital editing, raw edge applique and free motion stitching to create happy, colorful, and layered collage. When I hold fabric in my hands, I remember some of the earliest dresses my mom made for me, the sweaters my grandmother carefully designed on graph paper and knit and the love that went into all them. It makes me happy to feel connected to the generations of women who went before me. My subjects come from the heart and always have a degree of whimsy. Waterscapes, families at play, colorful florals and women, young to old, are recurring themes. From these originals we sew a variety of decorative and gift items; tea towels, pot holders, coasters, pillows, tote bags, cards, journals, and prints.
