About

I am a self-taught folk art painter and needle work artist. I had been painting for what seems like forever...my first canvas being my mother's walls when I was oh so very very small! While my earlier master-pieces may not have been fully appreciated at that time... I can say with joy that my work of over the past 35 years has been blessed with multiple awards, the honor to be hung and sold in fine art galleries and shops in NYC and Eastern Long Island, and has been collected both privately, and by well-known celebrities around the world.

As a creative artist I've always enjoyed embroidery and needlework too.
If I didn't have a paintbrush in my hand then it was a needle.

So in 2010, when I found I could no longer paint full time due to Multiple Sclerosis,

So in 2010, when I found I could no longer paint full time due to Multiple Sclerosis,
I started making Waldorf and Montessori inspired Felt Play Food Toys for Creative Play. And thus "The Fairy Felt Mother" was born!

In 2012, I had a major MS setback and needed to take some time off from creating.

Today, I now make Fidget Quilts / Sensory Blankets on my 1952 Singer Featherweight name Clara - in honor of two dear loved ones who suffer with dementia. These handmade beautiful Fidget Quilts and Sensory Blankets provide sensory and tactile feedback to patients with Alzheimer's, Stroke, Dementia, Brain injury, Autism and other sensory disorders. Specially designed with multiple fabric textures, trims, and small objects, these portable quilts bring comfort to fidgety restless fingers and busy hands.

As always -
It is my pleasure to bring a smile to your heart and a sweet song to your soul with every stroke of my brush or pull of my needle.

May You Always Walk In Beauty
