Just after I left Kansas for New York a friend's child asked me if things in Kansas were really black and white. That was insightful. I spent 30 colorful and creative years in New York City. My friends were designers, actors and architects and I found my niche in a love of mathematical order. Weaving and knitting became my passion. I wove tapestries for PanAm and then tapestry coats for celebrities.
My one-of-a-kind sweaters and coats were featured in magazines and sold in boutiques across the country
When the business of fashion became too much a business, I went to work for my former clients - Elizabeth Taylor, Cher and Catherine Deneuve to promote their perfumes
Following New York, we moved to a small coastal town in South Carolina. To keep busy I made a mirror frame from broken dishes, then tiled the baths in our new home. It began a 10 year, 24/7 obsession with mosaic.
I did one woman shows in South Carolina, Atlanta and Florida
My work was featured in national mosaic exhibitions in Chicago and LosAngeles
My sculptures were in invitational exhibits in Charleston SC, Attleboro MA and New Bern NC.
Since moving to Dallas in 2013 I have made my home my gallery and studio. I have begun to use fiber along with mosaic to create new forms with more vibvrant colors and texture. I am in a new phase.
