I create art in fibre, working with fabric, thread and quilt making; adding felting and stitching, working with tactile comforting media of fibre, using hand dyed and printed fabric and painting with thread to design colorful, artistic, functional art. I have been sewing and creating since childhood. I studied quilting construction, techniques, design, fabric dying and embellishing with numerous recognized quilt and fiber artists over the past 15 years; through numerous courses in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Olds College, Vermillion, Penticton, Toronto, Calgary, Rhode Island, & Houston. I have completed a body of both individual and collaborative work over the past 20 years while working as a business professional full time. I left my business career in January 2010 to work full time as a Quilting and fiber artist. I am building a body quilted fiber art to exhibit public facilities and commission work.
