I am a Pittsburgh potter and fiber artist. I have been working with clay for approximately 28 years. My work reflects my love of nature and I often use my garden flowers, ferns and trees as inspiration for the textures and natural colors of my pots. I enjoy exploring different firing methods and this has enabled me to create unique decorative finishes and surface designs for my one-of-a-kind pieces.
My fiber pieces include art quilts, quilted wall hangings, table runners and hand painted, printed and dyed silk scarves. I am currently creating eco-printed or botanical printed designs on cotton, silk and wool and then using them in my quilts. I also hand dye cotton and silk to get unique colors for my creations.
