Art Inspired by Nature and Nostalgia

Inspired by nature and nostalgia for days gone by, I use modern and vintage papers, book pages, and paint with stitching and buttons to create colorful art, rich in texture and meaning.

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember, always with a pencil and paper in my hands. That early childhood pastime has become a lifelong passion.

I majored in Studio Art and English Literature at Denison University. After graduating, I worked at art galleries and continued painting for several years. When I eventually took a job in another field, I stopped painting for more than a decade.

In 2005, I began painting again with a focus on painting with acrylics, inks, and watercolor, along with elements of collage and stitching.

Care instructions

Caring for my handpainted scarves: The fabric dyes are set and permanent. The scarf can be hand washed in cold water with a little fabric softener, then line dried. Use a cool iron to smooth out any wrinkles.
