I have had a passion for fibers my whole life.  I first learned the art of knitting and crocheting at the young age of eight.  I found my passion for weaving while an art major at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania.  I later transferred to The Rhode Island School of Design and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in textile design.   After graduation, I worked for a while in the industry as a jacquard designer, designing fabrics for upholstery and interiors.  Feeling held back creatively, I left the industry and started working full-time as a studio artist.  Inspired by nature, I experiment in many fiber art techniques, from knitting and weaving to surface design and dying.  I create one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of fiber art for both apparel and interior applications, currently concentrating  on apparel and accessories for women.  Each individual piece is designed by and handcrafted by me, using only the finest fibers and dyes.
