I design and create abstract contemporary textile paintings composed of my richly colored hand dyed fabric. My artwork is my passion and my intention is to become the very best artist possible.
I display my artwork in solo, invitational and juried exhibits in the United States and across the world. My textile paintings are in several public art collections and have been published numerous times, the best known was in 2003 when Structures #11 was selected for the cover of the Quilt National catalog.
I built a new state of the art textile art studio in 2009 and am always happy to schedule a studio visit if you would like a tour or to see my artwork.
I’m extremely motivated and have a reputation for being very productive and focused. I write about those topics on occasion both here at my other website: MakeBigArt. I created this website to empower artists to think big about their art, their marketing and their lives.
I am also a full time software engineer working in CRM (customer relationship management) for a giagantic software company.
I’m a single mother to 2 wonderful teenagers and fill my free hours with yoga, gardening, cooking, reading and hiking in the mountains of Colorado.
Life is a whirlwind of exciting adventures with little time to rest, yet I feel it is important to maintain a history of my art work [what inspires me, what I'm working, what outside influences are currently informing my creativity, etc] and hence I blog – the obvious journaling choice for a geek artist in the early 21st century.
I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts and looking at my textile paintings.
