All my life I have pursued art in one form or another, finding expression in clay, paper, paint, pencil, fiber and thread, often mixing mediums to express ideas. Seven years ago I started studying Art/Design and embroidery through City & Guilds of London at the Gail Harker Creative Studies Center in Oak Harbor, Washington. I have done extensive research into historical embroidery, interviewed embroiderers from around the world, and studied historical and contemporary embroidery in England.
Each piece is custom designed and is unique. As I work on a design I use words, pictures, and other inspirations to convey an expression of the place or individual for whom I am designing. The images in the Stations are inspired by Byzantine art and are intended to evoke emotions of the humanness of Christ as He faces His death.
