Over the past 30 years, my love of color, texture and beauty has been expressed through various textile mediums: sewing, weaving, knitting, felting, quilting and fabric collage. The women of my family were all masters of fiber and design. However, it has only been in the last five years since I have retired from the teaching profession and embraced the world of fine arts and crafts that the love of all things fiber has been fully expressed through painting on silk. It is wonderful at retirement age to have discovered that through silk painting, this love of color, design and line can be most effectively nurtured and expressed. I have found my passion!
