Artist Statement & Bio


I am drawn to rhythms and patterns found in nature, its random features, sometimes repetitive, sometimes sequential or undulating. My tapestry explores cross currents of color, the pulsing of fibers, and shifts in hue.

My introduction to weaving began when I attended classes at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Over the years — to refine techniques — I have attended Penland School of Crafts five times. Since my twenties I have explored both traditional and contemporary fabric structures including tapestries that use interlocked, soumak, and egyptian weaves.

I have lived in Chapel Hill since 1975 when I began my studies in visual design and received a Master’s degree in media from UNC.

I am a member of the Orange County Artists Guild and participate in the Open Studio Tour each year. I am also a member of the Durham Arts  Guild. My work has been exhibited at FRANK, Hillsborough Art Gallery, National Humanities, Walker Page, and many other juried venues across the Triangle. I also teach classes at the shop at my house.
