Seattle, United States

I grew up and still live in Seattle, Washington. I got my B.A. from the UW in 1975 in / Clothing, Textiles and Art. I began designing...

I am primarily a fabric artist/soft sculptor. My love of animals has inspired me to make (design, sew and sell) miniature animals to which I add wings, giving them an extra dimension and a little magic.
I have also been intrigued by Paper-cutting and have enjoyed exploring my animal friends in this medium. It’s also sculptural, in that you cut away what doesn’t belong and you create a dance between space and not-space. I like the boldness of the finished product and the complex simplicity of the black/white images.
My husband, Kurt, was a marvelous artist and did wonderful PaperCuts that you will see here as well.
