Color has always been my passion, and from an early age I have loved working with fabric and fiber.
The mesmerizing tones of cotton embroidery floss, the vibrant hues of dyed wool roving, the enticing rows of fabric bolts inside a quilt shop . . . these sights always inspired me!
As a child I was always crafting, sometimes with amusing results. At eight I upcycled a cousinʼs old green camp t-shirt, adding bright red bandana sleeves. At ten I designed and crocheted intricate knee high gladiator sandals from cotton string. At 12 I took my sisterʼs Balkan music album and copied its cover art as an embroidery.
At fifteen I took classes in weaving, spinning, and natural dyeing at The Art Students League in NYC, my home town. Other than that, I'm self taught.
Over the years my work with fiber and fabric has included weaving (backstrap loom), quilting, yarn spinning, felting, crochet, embroidery, macrame, and clothing upcycling.
Now, with marbling, I have discovered an art that is not only a fascinating exploration of patterns, but also an ideal way to indulge my love of color. Each design is unique, and offers an opportunity try new colors and new color combinations. It is truly an art of endless possibility!
