I am a local self taught artist who has been creating hand-painted fabric tapestries for about 20 years. The artwork is all my own original designs that are hand drawn with a rubber-based resist, I then paint on the fabric with textile paints and dyes. Inspiration for my designs are gathered from Ethnic-Tribal influences and Vintage fabric patterns from all around the world.
Originally from Connecticut, and after moving around a bit though-out California, I now reside here in Santa Cruz at the Tannery Artist Lofts. When I'm not doing art, I’m enjoying my other creative passion at my day-job as a Pastry Chef..
