The study of the fiber arts has been a life-long pursuit. Several years ago it led me to bead weaving, which has now become a passion along with quilting and mixed media work. The tactile and sculptural nature of beads and fibers allows for endless possibilities in creating jewelry, sculptures, and fiber hangings.

Regardless of the media I am using, my work is always influenced by my natural surroundings and the light as it changes through the seasons. This is the one constant in my work. Styles change. Methods of working evolve. Techniques vary. But each piece always reflects the season and times in which it was made and tells the story of the natural environment in which it was created.
