Welcome to my website and shop!

I am back from Kansas City, and the Brookside Art Annual last weekend. It was a good show, with all kinds of crazy midwestern weather- winds, rain, cold-damp, sun- all over the board. I showed my new textile work for the first time, and it was a resounding success. I sold one of the Fiber…
