I have always created art in the form of drawing, painting and sculpture. While growing up, art classes in school were never long enough to satisfy my love of creating and learning new techniques.
I have a BFA from the University of Utah; and was a Designer-Craftsman major studying jewelry making, sculpture, weaving, and printmaking. While I loved jewelry making and printmaking, I decided to only make art that took minimal equipment, and that was portable. My introduction to working with fabric was learning off-loom techniques of trapunto in my weaving class in college. I love working with textiles, dyeing my own fabric, and using surface design techniques.
