Artist & Teacher
As an artist and teacher, I have created many forms of art, especially fiber arts, since I was a child, having majored in it in school and taught it to children and adults all my adult life. Currently, I combine my love of both watercolors and fiber arts to paint with dyes on silk to create colorful, unique, wearable art: scarves, shawls, neckties, bowties, and more. I enjoy life with my husband in rural Tennessee and I am inspired in this setting by the beauty of God’s creation all around me.

Woodturner and Teacher
I enjoy turning wood and watching the wood become something unique and
sometimes something I could not ever have planned for. While I enjoy using my
imagination to bring forth a work of art that is unique, I also enjoy the challenge
of taking commissions pieces that are requested by clients. If you like to own
things that are created by hand and are one of a kind, please take time browse my
gallery of woodturning.
