Since l975, I have been professionally involved in the visual arts as a fiber artist, primarily producing, exhibiting, and marketing my work through a variety of sources.  I have taught extensively in short-term situations (i.e. workshops and at the university level,) and participated in a wide range of other professional experiences.  All involvements are detailed in my COMPLETE RESUME.

My work, since l970, has evolved in many series of works that now compose a portfolio of several hundred pieces of ARTWORK.
