I have been an artist my whole life working with fabric, paper and various objects to create flat as well as three dimensional pieces.  I also love collage and have boxes & boxes of imagery that I use in my work, repeating some of my favorite images over and over again. I especially like using vintage photos of my own family.

 I adore fabrics and am always looking for places in my house to stash my new finds. My most recent devotion is working with polymer clay. I combine it with found objects, imagery and especially like the faux stone techniques to create unique jewelry and art pieces.

I enjoy experimenting with new materials and techniques. I am attracted to old things and one of my interests is hounding flea markets and yard sales, searching for unusual objects and imagery to incorporate into my artwork.

One of my other passions is photography. My love of photography began at age 8 when I received my first Brownie camera. I also met my husband David through a mutual interest in photography and I now have the use of his (our) well-equipped darkroom. I shoot mostly infra-red film and print in black & white. I experiment with many alternative processes (pinhole cameras for instance) to create my own imagery. I hand-color many of my photos using a variety of colorants such as water colors, oil colors and pencils.

I teach classes in all the above media at a variety of venues including art galleries, art stores, paper stores, bead stores and rubber stamp stores across North America. I have appeared on Vermont's Local Access TV network, RETN. Check out the Events button to see where I'll be teaching or exhibiting in the future.

Some of my work has been published in The Studio Zine and my hand-colored photography was featured on the front cover of Somerset Magazine in the May/June 1999 issue. More of my work appears on the inside pages of that issue.
