My work with textiles and the dye and discharge process has much in common with contemporary painting - the come and go of colors, lines and impressions and textures but carved into the surface of the fabric by threads under tension.

I combine my love of color and abstract painting with a continuing exploration of the possibilities of fiber art. Although the viewers are discouraged from handling the art, I want them to ache to touch it.

 Everything I make is about exciting the eye and engaging the viewer with the tactile draw of cloth and the drama of the colors and shapes that hint at mystery, magic and sometimes the sly grin.
