VISUAL ARTIST – Weaving, Fiber

"I consider myself a serious artist whose goal is to be a part-time or full-time established professional artist."

After almost five years of high school teaching, I am ready to once again return to the active-artist life which I pursued for almost 20 years. I sold my work at regional shows and added to this income with after school and summer teachng. I also worked with designers and individual clients on commission work. My weavings are abstract; I employ trapunto as well as tapestry techniques to enliven my work.

Slides, video/audio tapes, or a brochure of work available to look at if requested.

I have taught art classes/private lessons for adults/students. I have done teaching/demonstrating in a school setting. I have acted as a Juror/panelist for arts grants/competitions. I have sold my work at art fairs. I have done commissioned work.
