I am a multi-disciplinary artist and designer living and working in New York. My twenties and thirties were primarily focused on illustration and graphic design, as I studied these disciplines in addition to art. The evolution of my art has centered on fiber art and textiles. These take the form of woven art-to-wear, sculpture, wall hangings and more traditional applications, as scarves and clothing. In addition to the woven medium,
I am also creating one-of-a-kind silk clothing reassembled from antique kimono fabric.
