About Me

I’m an Essex Girl transplanted to the Eastside of Lake Washington, near Seattle. I create with Mt Baker, a 10,000ft volcano, in view on a clear day.

I’ve always been a by-the-pattern crafter but now I love to experiment and explore.
I graduated from the Fiber Arts course at the University of Washington in June 2012. I’m continuing to explore altered books, journaling, mixed media collage, and creating one-of-a-kind fabrics. I also enjoying creating figures with layers of meaning and personality.

I’ve been posting on Instagram for the last year after a great summer class with Larry Calkin at Kirkland Arts Center. This led me to be a teaching artist for Make Your Mark Program in Fall 2018.

In June 2019 I celebrated 10 years as a Docent at Bellevue Arts Museum and look forward to returning to tour this fall.

I’m happiest exploring, creating, and enjoying within a mixed media universe.
