After several scientific degrees, I rediscovered stitchery as an art form. I began with beads first to weight down fiber adornments then as a medium in their own right and have since moved into knitting and felting. Whether working with beads or wool, my primary artistic focus is color and color transitions as well as shaping sculptural forms. I have recently expanded into oil painting concentrating especially on my love of dogs. As with my fiber work, color is important and I often see and express more colors than are technically existent in the actual canine.
