I am a mixed media artist, textile designer, magazine/newspaper layout designer, art quilter and writer/editor living in the heart of New York City.
I started out as a teacher, with a BS in Elementary Education/Art from SUNY Oneonta. Teaching elementary school really wasn't a good fit, so I went back to school and studied Textile Design at FIT. That WAS a great fit, and I worked as a print stylist for Leon B. Rosenblatt, a fabric manufacturer in New York's fashion district, for many years.
I love all kinds of art, and have tried watercolor, weaving, sculpture, pastel portraits, silkscreen printing, greeting card design, and more. I love sewing, occasionally crochet, almost never knit, and once in a while, putter with hand needle-felting.
After the birth of my daughter, I changed fields and went into newspaper layout design, learning about writing and editing along the way. Now I work for a hospital in New York, writing, editing and designing their monthly newsletter, quarterly magazine, and whatever other creative work comes my way.
I designed my own line of fabrics, which are available on spoonflower.
