I have been a self-educated, working studio artist and educator for 31 years working in 3D fiber sculpture. My attraction to working with Fiber is in the options it presents in its ability to shape-shift when using a variety of reclaimed materials and found objects. By applying ancient techniques and transitioning to contemporary designs, I can achieve my desired effects by using a mixture of repetitive layers, weaving, stitching, cold connections, painting, and encaustic. These multiple applications make it very easy to blend metal, wire, coastal debris, rubber, and organic materials of all kinds. Each layer of material mixed with different techniques begins to build structure that gives the objects and vessels their form and opens doors for detailed surface design embellishments.
My works have graciously received numerous awards and are held both in public and private collections, along with being seen and featured in 38 publications worldwide. I currently live and maintain, a fulltime studio in Cottage Grove, Oregon.
