Before beginning my work in Creative Aging in Portland, I lived in Argentina, Malaysia, Siberia, Indonesia, and Pakistan.
As an innovative batik and mixed media artist, I have worked with some of the great traditional artists/craft-masters of the world. Every day, I am inspired by the rich cultural traditions and artistic methods I had the opportunity to learn from my many years overseas.
My art is not only a celebration of these ancient art traditions but to pay homage to the people of these nations. I continue to create artistically today experimenting with paper, printmaking and mixed media in multi-dimensional pieces.
