I'm a storyteller at heart. Over the course of my career I have journeyed from weaving to ceramics, fabric collage, artist books, painting and paper mache as a vehicle for my tales. Cloth, thread, paper, color and pattern have been constant connectors through the years. My conviction that our greatest rewards often come from simple, everyday objects and moments is a recurring theme. Communicating with people through the objects I make continues to be the primary and sustaining focus of my work. I received my BA from Rhodes College. Since that time I have continued my education at Rhode Island School of Design, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and Penland School of Crafts where I was a Resident Artist 2008-2011.
