I am a mixed media fiber artist and greeting card designer by trade. I was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. and my mother was a seamstress so I grew up surrounded by fabric, threads and sewing tools and she taught me pretty much everything she knew about them.
I began stitching and quilting at a very early age and it is still my passion today. I studied graphic art and design at the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League, both in NYC.
The way I approach my work as a textile artist is with self confidence. I love what I do and I am very proud of my work and artistic expression.
I create my pieces with what inspires me at that moment. I take a modern approach to all of my abstract and geometric compositions and they are appealing to most from a design perspective.
Using form, rhythm and visual language, I combine the elements to create a composition on paper which has a mood all it’s own.
I stitch everyday in my studio, completing several projects at once and I am always excited to start something new. Every stitched piece is a true reflection of my thoughts and feelings at the time.
It is a healing journey for me and I am forever grateful for my talent.
It is my form of meditation and my sanctuary. I am happiest when in my studio creating new works of art. It lifts my soul, opens my heart and brings me to a place of solace.
I hope my work will inspire you!
