I graduated from San Jose State University in 1981 with a degree in Creative Arts. Took many different art classes, including Movement Workshop, Music in World Cultures, Weaving, Printing on fabric, photo transfer onto cloth, Watercolor, Ceramics, Photography, Folk Dance, Paper making, Art History.
I started making seaweed dolls, and watercolor weavings (collage). I am inspired by the patterns in nature, such as the patterns on a piece of bark. I have recently been doing a “quarantine series” of watercolors. And working on wood with fabric dyes.
After a trip to Mendocino Calif, where I saw pieces of seaweed wrapped around rocks I decided to make a series called “Rapt Rocks”. Recently I had the pleasure of taking the Pottery Class offered by the Creative Council. I enjoyed making bowls and beads and animal sculptures. It kept the creative juices flowing through out the winter months.
