Sculpture | Fiber Arts
Originally from Philadelphia, I have called Berkeley home for the past 30 years. I have worked as an artist-in-residence, a graphic designer and raised two children while painting and showing my art in many Bay Area alternative spaces. As a board member of the Berkeley-Sakai Association, I have traveled to Japan three times. Recently, I organized and coordinated the Berkeley-Sakai Bridge exchange and exhibit at ACCI gallery. I discovered weaving at a Japanese workshop in Osaka and found that my expressionistic approach to painting is the same vocabulary I use for my weaving: by gathering information and distilling it to its essential meaning while making decisions based on colors that sing and textures that surprise.
