I have been sewing for nearly all my life, learning from my mother who is a wonderful seamstress! For years I was a primitive doll maker, but have always loved lots of color both in fabrics as well as paper and fibers. Three years ago I started playing more with paper and making collages and Altered Books and mixed media art, always incorporating fabrics and fibers as well. In November 2002 I took a 3 day workshop with Susan Shie here in Ohio and learned her unique hand quilting style and I was hooked! I have also taken a class with Teesha Moore for an art doll cloth journal, even though I knew the basic technique, I just loved her style and her work! Since then I have made more quilt pieces, boxes, and journals using unusual batiks, over dye wools , vintage fabrics, fibers, beads, sequins, and anything else that can be sewn onto fabrics. I still use fabrics , beads, and fibers in nearly all my AB work and collages etc. I hope to have my next project be an all cloth journal with fabric/paper collages.
