my studio is piled high with paintings & old leatherbound encyclopedias & atlases & paper & fabric & jars of beachglass & rolls of painting linen & cans of brushes & bottles of ink. and a room of fabric. i'm surrounded with materials i love, making items to share. my background includes a bfa in painting, lots of travel and reading. years ago i found myself incorporating the old papers and found objects that i gathered into my paintings. and then a few years ago i used my love of mixing and combining to satiate my love of fabric by making quilts. i live with my amazing husband and our beautiful great dane edgar in a little stone house with a huge garden full of lavender and crabapple trees on lake ontario. our beach is an endless supply of beachglass and pebbles and peace. living a simple life full of love and happiness is the most important thing to me. and i hope the things i make carry a little of that ideal with them.
