My art stems from a deep personal healing experience of embodying color. From emotional to heart centered, I use holographic spectral color (light waves) to create intricate color experiences for my audience.

With fiber art, I use the warp and weft of fabrics like Belgian linen, silk, or cashmere to absorb and resist paint ~ unlike an oil painting where colors sit on the surface. Layers of translucent and opaque pearlescent color weave broad strokes and intense linear calligraphy together ~ to create a fusion of iridescent light and fiber that sparkles with the slightest breath as a healthy human.


Diversifying my practice is important. I have recently taken the path of reconsidering fiber works as part of my studio exercise. I am feeling the energy of this new medium.
It brings a new organic flow to a room and conveys the healing encounters my work is largely based on.
