Sioux Falls native, multi-media collage artist. Drawn towards using materials that are often in the last days of their existence. Old ephemera, aged book pages, maps, postcards, yellowed music sheets, thrift store thread and embroidery floss. Emphasis on images from nature, birds, flowers, plants, mountains etc. Pieces are often a combination of old materials with new work in the form of hand-painted repeating patterns and details, often finished with hand stitched sequins or glass beads.
I also spend much of my time stuck in directionless play with different fiber arts and crafts,..felt, yarn crafts, embroidery, quilting, etc.
