This collection represents the culmination of three areas of my artistic growth. I have loved all of them. The first is my pre-retirement career as an interior designer. I loved working with textiles and the color, texture and pattern. After I retired, I concentrated on painting. This was challenging and also dear to my heart. In 2003, my husband and I started to raise and breed Suri Alpacas. I fell in love with the silk-like fiber and learned to felt. I have combined all of my three loves in my work. The patterns that you see are from photos of my paintings printed onto fabric. I hope you enjoy my work, I really enjoyed making it. I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s show. I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has worked so hard to make it happen in this very odd year.
