I have always lived with the compulsion to make things.  Creating in any media is immensely satisfying, but since specializing in textiles, I have become hooked on exploring the depth and breadth of textiles as a creative medium.

Swapping and combining different techniques as well as introducing other media bring never-ending opportunities for experiments and surprises, which lead to some unique and (usually) pleasing results.
