Creating art out of fiber and stitch is my passion. In no other pursuit have I ever found the rewards and joy that I find in using textiles, thread, paint, beads, yarns, and whatever else inspires me to make an object of beauty to share with others.

My work is based in the quilting tradition of three layers stitched together, but the artistry of it goes far beyond the basic piecing of geometric shapes to create a bedcovering. You will see reflections of nature in my work as I live in a valley in the Rocky Mountains of Western Montana surrounded by mountains, rivers, streams and my own garden. Color and texture inspire my work and they are my palette.

I write about what I am doing with my art and where I hope to go. I create, I write, I teach, I share and I think about my art and tell you about it all on the pages of my blog.

Studio Tour

2014 Artists Along The Bitterroot Studio Tour
June 6-8, 2014
10:30am - 6:00pm
Visit our website for a map
and information about the artists

Catalogs are available at many businesses in the Bitterroot and Missoula. 

There is no fee for the tour and you can go to as many studios as you like.  There are many excellent artists in the valley and this is a great opportunity to meet some of them.  Artists will have art for sale and will be happy to talk with you about what they do and how they do it.  

I will be sharing "studio" space with three other artists at Shelley Peters' alpaca barn on Bass Ln.  Denise Pfau and Merle Ann Loman will also be at this location.  Please visit us!
