A new year, highlighted by a beautiful new moon! New beginnings... Its bitter cold here in New England, creating ice patterns throughout the land. Even on the windows of our warm home. Wishing many many blessings on our world as we enter 2009.
I'm a visual artist, working primarily in fiber creating fabric collage and art quilts. I also create mixed media, often with natural and found objects. And monoprints find their way into my work. Photography is also something I do quite often, sometimes for its own sake, sometimes as a tool for my work with cloth. I have an art studio at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, a vibrant community of more than 150 artists. After working in public radio for about 25 years (primarily at WGBH-FM in Boston)I re-discovered my artist self. I'm still working sometimes as a narrator and voice-over talent, primarily for Descriptive Video Service (DVS) at WGBH, which produces a narration track for blind people on the major PBS shows like NOVA, American Experience, Masterpiece Theater, Nature, etc. I love being outdoors, and much of my fiber art reflects my life-time love affair with nature.
