I believe in the HEALING energy of COLOR. I also believe that my technical ability to work with fabric and thread is a gift. Inspiration comes from the MUSE who guides the use of color energy and shimmering threads of illumination, as each piece evolves. COMMISSIONS are welcomed! I am happy to customize a design to reflect your preferences. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your special requests .

Wanting to create a portable labyrinth that one could walk with ones fingers, I chose the Labyrinth of Chartres' for inspiration. The hand painted canvas is covered with black ultrasuede fabric which was stitched into place and then painstakingly cut away in a reverse applique' technique. On a burnt orange silk background, rays of voile and metallic thread radiate from the center medallion giving the illusion of shimmering light.
In July 2015, this piece was featured in the Sacred Threads Exhibit at the Floris United Methodist Church in Herndon, VA. It will be a part of a traveling exhibit through 2017.
