I AM A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST WORKING PRIMARILY IN FABRIC AND PAPER APPLICATIONS INCLUDING WEAVING, QUILTING, COLLAGE, AND SCULPTURE. I USE BOTH TRADITIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL MATERIALS, INCORPORATING THE COLORS AND TEXTURES FOUND IN THE WOODS AND LAKESIDE ENVIRONMENT OF MY HOME IN RURAL IOWA.
I STRIVE TO BE FEARLESS AND INVENTIVE IN MY WORK. CONSTANTLY LEARNING NEW TECHNIQUES AND METHODS TO MAKE MY IMAGINED PIECES A REALITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF MY ART. I INVITE YOU TO JOIN ME IN MY ADVENTURES!

Bag of sorrows
I lead a charmed life—no worries, tragedy or stress and nothing ever goes wrong for me or my family. I am confident and successful.
I am always ‘fine’, ‘excellent,’ or even ‘fantastic’ when someone asks how I feel.
Those who know me—or think they know me -- never ask what is in my bag, although it is always with me-- I carry it or hang it in any room I am in.
Until I am at home.
At night I crack the locks and take out my sorrows—not all at the same time, but I ponder and reflect on my life.
Then, in the early hours of the morning—I close the locks and get ready for the new day.
