Having been raised in a creative home, I tried everything from spinning wool to embroidery as artistic outlet. But nothing struck me like off loom bead weaving did. It gave me a way to combine my loves of needlework and nature by experimenting with colors textures, and materials.
Gradually my interests have evolved and I now find myself with a new passion, painting. I'm particularly drawn to strong, bold textures that I get from the use of large brushes and pallet knives. I am enjoying expressing color and texture in this new medium, exploring a slightly more literal impression of the world around me.
