I have been an artist all of my life. I am an ASID Interior Designer, photographer, goldsmith and now a Fiber Artist. I enjoy merging my interests in photography and quilting. My technique – Thread Stories – is a process based on printing my photographs on fabric and creating a realistic representation of the subject in thread. I am a street photographer. My travels to remote villages in third world countries, gathering images of individuals involved in the routine of their daily lives, and documenting people on the streets of a busy cosmopolitan city have allowed me to create a fabulous collection of images that are the basis of my fiber art. As people view my art, there is an emotional response that validates the stories that are being told.
I am a teacher, curator, entrepreneur and New Mexico cattle rancher. I teach my Thread Stories technique internationally. My art also travels the world in juried shows. I have written a book about my technique – Thread Stories. I encourage you to purchase it to learn more about my technique. I have also included a section on this website – Tutorials – that will give you an in-depth journey into my thread world!
