Santa Fe, New Mexico
I have been an artist all of my life. I am an ASID Interior Designer, Photographer, Goldsmith, Chinese Brushstroke painter and Fiber Artist.
My technique – Thread Stories – is a process based on printing my photographs on fabric and creating a realistic representation of the subject in thread. The images are covered 100% in thread. If I am creating a large piece of art, I may have over 150 hours in the piece and over 250 colors of thread.
I am an Encaustic artist. The contrast between smooth wax and textured thread involves the viewers eye, bringing them into the art story being told.
My Contemporary Fiber Structures are based on Japanese and Chinese Arts. I include Washi paper, Katagami, Shashiko and Chinese Brushstroke in my art. I work in two and three-dimensional forms.
I have been exhibited in Europe, The United States, Australia, and Asia. My work has been exhibited in Museums and three times at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
