As a fiber artist I especially like the interplay of color, most specifically bright definite colors. I like to blend colors together and have been dyeing yarn and creating surface design to obtain an artistic effect. At present much of my weaving is for clothing; however, I have woven tapestries, rugs, and table linens. Creating wearable art in both weaving and beadwork is an interest of mine. I enjoy learning new weaving techniques and am frequently experimenting, especially with complex weave structures which I weave on a 16-shaft computerized loom. I have been also learning tapestry techniques which provide a new creative outlet.

Working with beads has opened up a new avenue for my interest in color interaction, because the glass beads come in opaque, translucent, iridescent, matte, and metallic varieties.  I enjoy blending different hues of beads together and strive to create a pointillist effect with beads.  For design on the beaded neckpieces I have especially liked doing geometric styles with asymmetry built into the design.  I have also completed a number of beadwork pieces of flowers.

I am active in the Las Tejedoras Fiber Arts Guild, have served as the New Mexico representative for the Handweavers Guild of America, and was on the board of the Intermountain Weavers Conference.  I was president of the board for the Española Valley Fiber Arts Center for two years, and a board member for 6 years.  I am also a member of Complex Weavers.
