I am a mixed media textile artist creating unique art quilts, embroideries, and collages for the home and art to wear. I use a combination of traditional hand and machine work with contemporary techniques. A retired opera singer, I am inspired by traditional quilting, textures, form, colors, ephemera along with the amazing and sometimes funky textiles I’ve seen in my travels around the world.
As a child and teen growing up in NYC, I was introduced to the many museums there such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Frick Collection where my love for textiles started. Since 2011, I have shared my life with a talented amateur astronomer and telescope maker Shawn. A STAR TREK geek long before I met him, we share a love of the stars and traveling in our RV where I pick up many of my design ideas.
Like music, art inspires us. I hope to inspire you to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. This is my passion. Besides, who wants to do housework!!
