Findley Lake, New York
"I am a story teller. My artwork reflects personal experience, each a page from the journal of my life, whether depicted in fiber, photography or paintings. They all reproduce a moment in time stashed in the memory and brought to life through my art.
"My work is predominantly done in fiber. I approach fabric with a combination of sewing, painting, batik and dyeing. Additional details are added with pastels, colored pencils, printing techniques, bleaching and markers. Just about anything that can be done on paper can be done on fabric.
"I also work in felted fiber. The fibers of alpacas and sheep become my paints. My canvas is a felted wool background. My paintbrush is a barbed needle. I apply the fibers, blending colors in much the same way that painters apply paint to canvas. When the piece is completed the fibers so merge with the wool background that you can see a shadow image on the reverse side."
