Contemporary Original Textile Art, Art Quilts, and Art Objects
Coming from a career background in high tech publishing, advertising and graphic design, for the past fifteen years I've dedicated my focus to textile arts and writing.
All of the items in my shop are handmade, by me.
Most of my artwork is eco-friendly, using organic fabrics and fibers and sustainable materials. I search for materials such as fabrics, threads & fibers, adhesives, paints, metals, and embellishments that are grown, created, and processed in environmentally sensitive and humane ways. I work hard to find ecologically sustainable materials, as well as giving preference to Fair Trade products.
My Etsy shop presents a selection of smaller works, home decor items, and unique ornaments. I also do custom work for home, office, or corporate installation.
