I am in love with the process of creating fiber art.
Every creation is a journey involving multiple steps,
each offering up a different challenge to be met.
With the majority of my work being wearable art,
I take great pleasure in thinking that my creations
are wrapping someone in a colorful cocoon
whether it be for a day at the office, on a trip to London
or out for an evening at the opera.
Success is a meditation panel that helps calm the chaos
and promotes a more Zen-like environment,
bringing inner peace and tranquility.
My goal is to spread love, light and good energy through my art.
