I am a self-taught figurative fiber artist and have been engaged in creating art dolls for over 20 years with over 20 years of experience in education. My art reflects inspiration from dreams, colors, sounds, nature, people, other art work, and a love for antiques. Figurative art provides me with something beautiful, calm and peaceful to focus on. It is this experience that I choose to share in the classes that I teach. I have had the honor of exhibiting my works internationally and have been published in Art Doll Quarterly, Artistic Quarterly Magazine, Art Trader Magazine, and contemporary Doll Collector.
