As a self taught artist and a very tactile person I have always loved working with textiles. I was exposed to silk painting during an art therapy class for breast cancer survivors. I was immediately entranced by the luxuriousness of the silk fibers and the luminosity of the dyes. One of my passions is painting the human form on silk. During my battle with cancer I came to appreciate the human figure in it’s loveliness and flaws. I hope to express through my art that there is beauty in imperfection.
