Inspired by the Extraordinary in the everyday

I find great joy and fulfillment in designing and creating art out of fabric.  Not infrequently, art has "happened" when two or more otherwise unacquainted fabric pieces - creased and frayed or flat and squared up - accidentally bumped into each other and became friends.  Time in the studio is a feast of experimentation and discovery, as the fabrics take me on adventures in depth, dimension, metaphor and whimsy. 

"You completely transformed the fabric and in a way that really made it something else. It struck me as really innovative and singular."
