I started my artistic life as a photography major at Columbia College in Chicago. One day I walked into a room with floor looms and became captivated. Weaving brought me into the world of fiber and I have never left.  For me as an artist, it had everything that made sense to me; work of the hand, a communal excitement for the craft and a playground for color and texture. Throughout the years, my medium has changed, but I maintain my connection to fiber as a tool to bring texture to my work.

The artwork I am producing today is a unique fusion of 2 mediums, paint and fiber.  Each piece is a translation of my love of nature, color and texture.
