Artists Profile
My love of texture is endless, whether it be in fabric, textile fibers, nature....itís all around us. And when pattern and color are woven, they melt together, becoming one again. Iím inspired by their depth and beauty. Iím most happy when creating new designs and most excited when I see something totally unrelated Ė and Iím able to transform that object or idea into my art.

Growing up in an artsy family, I learned to see beyond two dimensions, and a life of fantasy and creativity surrounded me. I believe we all have a capacity to connect with our inner self and find that wrinkle, that obscure place where nothing can stop us!

My interest in textiles and design began at an early age. So it seemed only natural that I would pursue an art degree. I chose Interior Design. I learned many art forms, including weaving and textiles, which became my favorites. After receiving a B.A. from Russell Sage College in New York, then owning my own interiors business for several years, I realized I was missing that creative time alone. So now Iím back to doing what I love most. Whether youíre looking for a dramatic, formal look or fun and funky, I have it!

Another passion of mine is rescuing retired racing greyhounds. When purchasing a pillow, purse or wall art, you will also be helping a much-exploited breed find a better life. A portion of my profits go directly to finding greyhounds a loving home.

Living in beautiful Sarasota, Florida is very inspiring Ė an artistís paradise. I reside here with my husband and two wonderful greyhounds.
