The tug of the needle in my hands, the hum of my sewing machine and the aroma of freshly dyed linen just out of the dryer, all combine to make fiber art my passion. I create unique materials by deconstructing, dying, spinning or repurposing I listen to the fibers; sometimes loudly, often a small voice. Fiber to thread, to yarn, to cloth, and back. It’s the texture of life and the practice of my art. I work and play with fiber daily. Quiet time in my studio brings focus and solace; initial ideas percolate. Studio walls are festooned with supplies displayed everywhere. Photographs, emotions and simple observation begin artworks with experimentation and perseverance. On two large design walls, snippets constantly shift until the rhythm and balance gel. Assembly is often by hand, slowly soothing the creative muse.
