I received a BFA in Seattle from Cornish, which that same year (1977) had just become Cornish College Of the Arts. My thesis for graduation considered "art as cricketsong", the defining noise of the species.
My professional life began as a printmaker. My work can be found in the collections of the Metropolitan and Brooklyn Museums as well as other institutional collections in the US, Japan, Korea and Portugal. Since then, I have explored a number of other media.
Currently my focus is on making art jewelry and some textile work. I have also practiced Japanese textile arts, wood carving, basketry, mixed media sculpture, poetry and dabbled in a number of craft-based media. Use of recycled and sustainable materials in all endeavors is of ever-increasing importance to me.
