My formal art training was in fine art – watercolor to be specific. I studied fiber design with a master of weaving and worked as an apprentice in a professional weaving studio. I opened my own weaving studio in northern California where I began executing large-scale site-specified fiber sculpture, and was eventually ranked in the top 2% of commission fiber artists in the country.
The execution of large-scale commission work is a process that involves working with architects, project directors, construction supervisors, art committees and the general public. It is the process of collaboration, mutual respect and willingness to keep an open mind; a process with which I am familiar and enjoy a great deal.
