Over the past 40 years I have worked in a variety of fibers areas. I began my career in fibers with a BFA in Weaving. After teaching high school art for several years I received a MA and PhD. As a professor at the University of Arkansas in Little rock, I developed a Masters program in Art Education and the Undergraduate Applied Design program with an emphasis in Fibers.
Since my retirement, I have returned to my studio at the Lake of the Ozarks on a full time basis. As a fiber artist I draw on my love of tactile materials, color, fabric and surface design processes using a variety of media in the creations of my weaving, felting, books, sculptures and other fiber creations.
“Sunbeam Scarf” is a developing process of designing with a variety of yarns and wool that is wet felted to produce lace pattern scarves. “Feather Dance” has grown from fabric dying processes and embellishment through quilting, stitching techniques and embellished with peacock feathers.
