Fairbanks, AK - United States

I grew up in a family where being creative was encouraged.
As well as getting out in nature...which wasn't always possible in suburban ohio.
So these two elements have been a constant in my life;
creativity and the natural world.
I have been blessed to be able to travel and work in remote and beautiful areas of the world.
Which become the inspiration for my artwork.

I am self taught in both batik (23 years) and watercolor (8 years)
And have recently learned Oil painting using palette knives. Way cool!

Batik is the process of using wax and dyes to create designs on fabric. Wax is heated in a tool called a tjanting and then passes thru a copper or metal tube on to the fabric. Where the wax is placed, the dye cannot penetrate. I work in layers to create a design. Wax some, Dye some. When the dye touches the fabric, it spreads like water. So the wax creates a border that controls where the dye can go. Salt creates a unique effect as well. When the piece is finished, the wax is removed. I then stretch the silk on foamcore using linen tape.
Each piece is signed and ready to be matted and framed under glass.
I use only high quality silk fabric and pure beeswax in my work.
And, having never taken a class, I have created my own unique style in this beautiful medium.

I also design knitting patterns.
I knit every day and think if i didn't knit i would probably take up smoking.

I am an artist.
Using wax, dyes and silk or water, paint and paper, i interpret what i feel thru the filters of my eyes.
