Since I was a child, I have loved Japanese wood block prints and try to capture their beautiful line quality in my Asian inspired art pieces that include geisha in colorful kimonos and most recently my Kabuki Warrior. And for years I was a fashion illustrator for advertising agencies so female figures are almost always in my art such as my textile collage Colored in Klimt. I used fabrics with iridescent jewel tones and beautiful patterns made famous by the artist Gustav Klimt. You will see a more whimsical side in textile mixed media pieces from my “Best Friend” series such as Tomorrow I’ll Be A Butterfly. This past year I had several pieces on exhibit at the San Jose Quilt Museum, Olive Hyde Art Gallery, Harrington Gallery, and the Slater Museum in Norwich, CT.
I look forward to sharing my art with you including my designer pillows and silk fashion scarves.
