My artistic journey began being born in New Orleans, Louisiana. My artwork has taken me through a myriad of travels, experiences, exhibits, art shows, including renaissance fairs and festivals around the country. For many years, I worked in the medium of watercolor. Early on, I transformed my impressionistic works into abstracts and later adding into the mix my fascination for dimension and texture. My travels taught me, not only about the quality of my art, but most importantly, thinking outside the 'frame'.
After moving to the Pacific Northwest, my work as a Watercolorist transitioned to working with fiber. Serendipitiously, the use of color in its liquid form persevered as watercolors turned into dyes. I fell in love with the process, as it allowed me to design my own freestyle , deminsional creations. Fiber art belonged in my artistic repertoire; into my artistic Soul. For this reason, I named my work 'FiberSoul'.
