My birds with boots are the first in my sophisticated whimsy series. They are special to me because it's like revisiting the innocents of my childhood and the countless hours of dreaming and nurturing my inner child.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I'm a self-taught studio artist. I create 2-D Textile and Mixed Media art. My work draws from a history as an Oregon gallery owner, twenty-five years as a weaver and clothing designer in Michigan, explorations in clay and paper making as well as teaching enrichment classes and running weaving retreats. My current body of work Sophisticated Whimsy is a romp through my imagination. It involves hand painted cloth that has been cut, frayed and layered with stitching and specialty threads.
