I have always had a fascination with fabrics. Since I was a young child I have sewn, knitted, crochet, embroidered, cross stitched. I would sit with my mother and grandmother and work on projects. It has always been my dream to be an artist. Using fiber, cloth and paint came from various classes I attended and books I have read. Each medium seems to work so easy together and the result is always interesting.When I look at art, I am fascinated with the creative process, and it is always fun to be surprised.  My inspiration is the fabric and how many ways it can be used to create a piece of art.Working as a contract costume designer for Opera Memphis was inspiring. The costumes are a mix of all types of elements and fabric to make a beautiful presence on stage.  This process led me to using the fabrics in my art. It inspired me to experiment and let the fabric be used like paints.

I hope you will look closely and enjoy.
