"For as long as I can remember I have been driven to create which has lead me in many directions.  About 30 years ago my creative drift came to a halt upon discovering fiber art with its endless possibilities. It has satisfied my love of color combinations, texture, and creative design. This art has been expressed in wall hangings, wearable art, and more recently, fiber baskets."
