“Go to your studio and make stuff.” This is my motto and I truly believe that everything we make, use and give should delight the senses, engage the mind and bring beauty to our world.

I’ve been making art (or some semblance of it) in one form or another since age three (drawing dog bones on the garage walls, much to my parents’ dismay). With advanced degrees in both photography and textiles, art has led me in many directions and my career has encompassed a wide variety of professions including pastry chef, art director, location scout, miniature golf course designer, photo stylist and paint color consultant.

For the past 20 years I specialized in creating clever invitations, favors and party ephemera for both private and corporate clients, and also designed logos and related business collateral. Presently I’m working on both stitched fiber and paper collages, utilizing cotton and silk threads, handmade papers and my own photographs and rubber stamp images. Working with encaustics has become an obsession and now my studio is filled with the lovely fragrance of bees wax!
