About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Mixed Media and Fiber Artist
Location Anchorage, Alaska, United States
Introduction My creative expression is displayed pretty much in everything I do, whether it be gardening, cooking, writing, home decorating or studio work. I'm intrigued by many art mediums and currently devote my efforts primarily toward art quilting, mixed-media techniques and some mosaics. My artwork is typically nature inspired, vibrant in color and almost always one of a kind. I have yet to develop a specific 'style'.
