Combining textiles and printmaking techniques to make clothing and art--that's my thing. 

My inspiration for making work is rooted in carrying on the traditions of the groundbreaking feminist textile artists who blazed the trail through the fine art world for work like mine which is as likely to be wearable or utilitarian as not. I also celebrate the craft of thread and fabric practiced more out of necessity than choice by my many female ancestors.  Their work, however humble, shone with creativity and vision and I honor them through my work.

I am a proponent of Slow Cloth as well as the DIY maker movement and love to share my techniques and skills through my workshops and one-on-one lessons.
