One of the important ideas about my work process is that I try not to listen to my “shoulds”…. what art should
look like. What I should paint. What is right or wrong. My goal is to say “yes” to have fun, to play with the colors, shapes, textures, adding papers, painting over, scraping out, exposing what the paint holds, exposing stories outside my own lines and boxes.

Warm textiles tell the story for Jo Ann’s December show. Hand felted mitts, scarves and wraps that have been naturally dyed and printed will be featured each telling a story through printing, stenciling and stitching.
