I learned to embroider and sew as a child. This was how I first learned to express my creativity. Over the years, I have enjoyed quilting, fabric painting, paper making, book arts, felting and making fiber art jewelry. My fiber art bracelets came about as a way to use up bits and pieces leftover from other projects. They have been a great lesson in how to create something from nothing. My bracelets are sold at SWISH, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Artist's Statement: For me, it is all about the details. Whether I am making jewelry, needle felting or art journals, it is the fine detail work that I enjoy the most. It is my goal to create art that is meaningful and beautiful. It is through the integration of various media and attention to color, texture, layers and embellishment that I strive to accomplish this. As Renoir once said, "Why shouldn't art be beautiful? There are enough unpleasant things in the world."
