Silk Fusion

All are framed with archival mats and backing and are under glass with top of the line metal frames. Most are mounted to Arches Cover printmaking paper. 

I recently started working with silk fusion, and I fell in love with the process. My time is divided between silk fusion and felted wearable art. I work in my studio at least 8 hours a day 4 - 5 days a week.  Art is about the only thing I do.


Natural Disasters

Mount St Helen’s volcano was the first natural disaster that I experienced up close. More recently the fires in California, especially Paradise where I lived as a child, left me saddened by the devastation and the loss of lives. It seemed fitting to express my feelings in this series of work.

“Natural Disasters” is a series of work done using silk fusion, also known as silk paper. It is a process using silk slivers adhered together using a medium. I have added gold, silver and copper to some of the images. Yarns, fabric and found objects are prevalent in some of the pieces. I love this medium. It is filled with surprises which forces my creativity. I am excited by light and dark patterns and using those to create rhythm in my work. These abstract pieces are a deviation from the realistic human figures that I have always worked with. The bottom line is all about composition, the most important element in any art medium.
