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 thrilled me!
By the age of eight I was crafting. My youthful creations were ambitious, and sometimes inadvertently amusing. Before I was twelve Iʼd modified a cousinʼs t-shirt with bandana sleeves; crocheted an intricate gladiator sandal out of cotton string; and used the cover art of my sisterʼs Balkan folk music album for an embroidery pattern.
In the decades since, Iʼve done weaving, quilting, yarn spinning, felting, crochet, embroidery, macrame, and clothing upcycling. Iʼm mostly self taught, but at fifteen I took classes in weaving, spinning, and natural dyeing at The Art Students League in NYC, my home town.
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!
