I am a multimedia artist with a recent concentration in fiber art. With a focus on nature and wildlife animals, my work ranges from the realistic and lifelike to the abstract and whimsical. I enjoy the tactile qualities of my work, and am often amazed at the almost magical transformation of the raw materials from a fluid state into something more enduring and solid. I prefer a neutral, muted palette for many of my pieces, but take the leap into vivid colors on occasion, delighting even myself. Though I have contemplated making art that has a deeper meaning or message, for now I am content to retain the spirit of play and joy in my pieces, hoping to bring a smile to the face of all those who see it.
