Thank you for visiting my online portfolio. I am a visual artist – my medium is fiber, my technique is collage. I describe my work as “fiber collage.”
I manipulate, layer, fuse, quilt, stitch and embellish commercial fabrics and fabrics which I dye myself to add color or discharge to remove color. I often incorporate other materials in my work, such as paper, paint, ink, metal, beads, paper and found objects. You will find that I am particularly fond of the torn and frayed edge, and that I use stitch, by hand and by machine, as a decorative element in addition to the obvious utilitarian purpose of joining layers of fabric.
