My interest in Art & Textiles started in High School. Afterward I continued my studies of both contemporary and traditional Art & Fiber/Textiles at R.I.T., the U. of Wisconsin (M.A., M.F.A.) as well as other Art schools . Teaching Art/Textiles at various institutions including the University of Wisconsin, N.I.S.D.A. and the Nantucket Public Schools paralleled my Art practice. My work ranges from fabric design, collage, drawing, pen & ink, printmaking to mixed media sculpture.
