Artisan Profile

Fibre is my medium and Textile Art, History and Education my passion. As a Professor, Textile Design Program, St. Lawrence College, Kingston, I have the unique opportunity to share and influence our Program students in all areas of fibre/textile exploration, making of fine art using fibre in many ways in surface design, development of stitch base and multi media techniques.

As a member of both the Kingston Fibre Artists and CONNECTION Fibre Artists, I have the opportunity to share my own work in exhibitions throughout Ontario, and across Canada. I am a SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) Central Canada Representative and share the organization’s mission across our Ontario and Quebec.

I paint or dye all of my own fabrics for inclusion in my art. I travel and teach technique based workshops and own a business, FIBREWORKS KINGSTON,  focused on bringing the best Instructors to our fibre friends in a Weekend Workshops format each year.
