My art documents the progress of my experiences as a woman, mother and creator aging in rural Iowa. As I child I lived on my family’s farm and felt a connection to the earth, to its textures and its colors. Only now, after I spent nearly a lifetime in the city where I could find employment and resources necessary to raise my children, can I come back to the places and spaces where I again hear my inner thoughts.
I am a mixed media artist. Through weaving, sculpting, collaging, and quilting with fabric and paper, I tell the stories of my years lived, years lost and years to come.
