I've had a lifetime fascination with color and fabric,expressing myself through a variety of art work. I started sewing when I was 8years only and could barely work the knee pedal of my mother’s old Morris sewing machine. I love the tactile quality of fabric and the unlimited colorsand textures I can create by dyeing, painting and printing my own fabrics. I starteddesigning quilting pattern in 2001 to showcase my hand dyed fabrics. My workhas been displayed in solo and group exhibits throughout the Western UnitedStates and Japan.
