 ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“In the midst of the clatter of life, I need the beauty of nature and I find peace in weaving wall tapestries. Art, to me, is an expression of communication between artist and viewer on the feeling level. Colors and textures excite me as I try to convey my impressions of nature. After walking and photographing outdoors, I sketch and design to interpret nature’s elements. Using combinations of yarns or mediums, I create flowers, sunsets, mountains into paintings and handwoven tapestries for beauty, joy, and contemplation indoors.”
