Current Work

My fiber/mixed media work focuses primarily on two themes: Dakota Memories and Waging Peace. Inspiration for the work evolves from love of the natural world I remember from growing up in the ’50s on the South Dakota prairies (Growing a Dyer’s Garden) and the fear that we as a culture are destroying it. My cross-cultural work inspires my intention to bring diverse people together and build communities that support one another through working with the fiber arts (Creating A Common Thread).  Amazing Grace was the 2015 4th place winner in the Textiles division in Fine Arts at the Minnesota State Fair.
