My Story

"My desire is to combine art and practicality so that anyone can have a garment with color, flash and energy."


I have been sewing since I learned on my grandmother's treadle machine as a child and was introduced to the wearable art movement when I moved to California in the 1970s.  Captivated by the idea of turning art into garments, I began dyeing my own fabric. Technically "self-taught", I have attended many classes at Arrowmont School of the Arts, and am especially grateful for the inspiration and guidance of other fiber artists.

My studio is in a renovated 19th-century brick building located in historic downtown Plattsburg, Missouri.  There, surrounded by dyes, clamps, brushes, and bolts of silk fabric I design garments, silk scarves, and other accessories.  I am driven to turn my ideas into color and translate them onto fabric.

My work is shown in galleries and at art shows, winning several awards at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum Membership Show.  I belong to many art groups, including Silk Painters InternationalThe Fiber Guild of Greater Kansas CityPlattsburg Artists Coalition,  Best of Missouri HandsKansas City Artists Coalition , and the Cultural Corner Art Guild & Gallery.
