Over the past 30 years as an artist and while pursuing my BFA from the University of Washington, I've studied and practiced many fine art techniques, such as drawing, painting, collage and printmaking. In the process of becoming a professional graphic designer/illustrator, I find that having acquired general design skills has assisted me in tackling some of the challenges of creating art quilts. Currently, I enjoy combining my repertoire of art techniques, while learning new ones and trying new products. I especially like to combine current technologies such as digital imagery and PhotoShop with age-old painterly techniques, rubber stamping, thermofax printing, dyeing, beading, and needlefelting.
In the past few years, I have discovered the art-to-wear movement and have enthusiastically embraced creating unique garments and accessories that defy the transitive world of fashion and fall into the category of classically beautiful clothing, never out of style. My contemporary ¡°Ethereal¡± lace technique has evolved from accessories such as scarves and wraps into garments, like jackets and vests.
