In 1972 I began pursuing the study of fiber as an art form. From the first weaving class at the De Young Museum School in San Francisco, I intensified my study of fiber structure, manipulation, and color at Colorado State University and the University of Washington. Courses in design, art history, drawing, painting, and graphic design continued to form my direction in fiber art.
Fiber and all of its many uses, from simple garments and utilitarian pieces to religious objects and sculpture, reflect mankindís continued love of not only the finished object but also the process. At the same time, textile art follows the transformation of modern man from the most primitive stages to modern sophistication in all cultures world-wide.
Paper making and printing, silk painting, weaving, basketry are areas of study that have continually fascinated me and encouraged a life long interest in how these fiber-art forms reflect our artistic evolution.
