Working with my hands brings a joy beyond words. Whether using paint, yarn, thread, or fabric; whether purposed for function, form, or fun; whether using new materials or used; whether polished or primitive — hand made work continues to bring me pleasure and presence. From painting on canvas to weaving, then to fabric painting/surface design, on to clothing — stitching over, under, on top of, within — always with the hand, the touch, the feel, this is my story.
