My start in the arts began when I won a box of magic tricks for a drawing I submitted to the “Captain Kangaroo” show art contest when I was six years old and living in Dallas. I went on to earn a BFA at UT Austin, certification to teach art, and an MA at the University of North Texas. Unfortunately, I received the teaching certification just in time for the budget cuts to the arts in public schools. However, I was able to do adaptive methods for helping multiply disabled children work in art.
I have mainly created landscapes and spacescapes in pastel, oil and acrylic paint. It was after moving to Wimberley in 2012 and joining the Wimberley Quilt Guild on a whim, that I realized the possibilities of using fabric for landscapes. Where possible, I incorporate beading and embroidery. After taking a refresher weaving class with Kathy Utts at Ply! I now incorporate weaving to add more texture and richness with various yarn fibers. The endless choices of patterns, colors, textures, and combinations of shapes and design is a challenge I look forward to for each fiber art wall hanging.
