I am a fine art textile maker.  I create one of a kind resist dyed wool and jacquard pieces, suitable for interiors.  I am open to working with interior designers and consultants.

Artist's statement: My work is a combination of modern technology and ancient techniques.  All of the work that I do is sustainable practice.  The wool pieces are clamp resist and acid dye, with hand stitch.  The jacquard pieces are woven at the Oriole Mill in Hendersonville, North Carolina, an artisan mill.

The inspiration for my fine art textiles comes from forms and colors found in nature.  I use these elements to create pieces that guide the atmosphere of interior spaces through color and the inherent sound absorbing qualities of fiber.  The materials I use allow a full range color palette, from brilliant tomes to muted shades.

Because the themes in my work center around the beauty of the natural environment, my working process incorporates green practices of water conservation and natural energy to produce long lasting, beautiful works of art.  The imagery and materials combine contemporary aesthetics, modern technology, and ancient processes.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
