Fiber, Mixed Media

I believe in the power of the hand-written word. To receive a note or card in someone’s handwriting is to feel connected to that person in an intimate way that electronic communication and social media cannot provide. The gifts of time and caring show through the words.

Making cards and journals allows me to work in different media. I enjoy incorporating drawing and painting with sewing. Some of the fabrics and papers may be hand-dyed.

The cards I create are designed to provide an opportunity for connection between the writer and the reader, the journals to provide a place to store one’s feelings, journeys, adventures, or ideas.
