Experienced in painting on many types of materials & surfaces including interior & exterior walls, designs on cars, furniture, fashion fabrics, costumes (stage & movies).
Years prior to having my Bucks County studio I worked throughout the country dying fabric, sewing and designing costumes in the opera, ballet and independent performance artists.
I received a BFA from Moore College of Art & Design in Textile Design and a minor in Fashion Design in 1995. Before attending Moore I studied silk painting & fabric dying with the Japanese designer, Kumiko Murashima and studied classical painting and drawing in Moscow, Russia. The two different disciplines laid the technical foundation for my future as an artist.
I currently have work in the Westmoreland American Art Museum boutique. There you will find silk masks, Arashi Shibori silk chiffon and unique scarves.
