I’m a Midwesterner, by birth and choice. My award-winning artwork is exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally
in museums, art centers, and galleries. It is held in private and permanent collections throughout the world and has been published in more than fifty exhibit catalogs, books, and magazines.
Almost all of my artwork is created from early fall until spring. I travel, work in my landscape garden, and paint/print all the fabrics I use in my artwork during the spring and summer. Toward the end of summer, I am excited to return, full of inspiration from living in nature and seeing new things, to the studio. My studio is a warm and light-filled refuge in the cold of fall and winter.
I consider one of my lifetime achievements to be the use of fiber artwork to raise over a quarter of a million dollars for the American Cancer Society through the generosity of donor fiber artists and their amazing patrons. The Honorary Chairperson of Fiberart For A Cause was Karey Bresenhan, founder and Director Emeritus of International Quilt Festival. Karey made possible events such as the fiber postcard sale that raised $58,000 ($30 per donated postcard) at the 2006 International Quilt Festival – Houston.
