My love of fabrics continued to grow, and in 1967 I entered Iowa State University as a textile major. After my very first weaving class I changed my major to applied art with an emphasis in weaving and have ever since been obsessed with everything textiles.
In 2014 we moved to Fairview, Oregon to be closer to our Portland-based daughters and to get involved in the exciting life in the Portland area! I joined Portland Saturday Market and show my work there most weekends. I heard about Artistic Portland through another artist, and am so pleased to now be a member of this cool group. Being a part of Artistic Portland gives my work a special home among a group of other local artists who are all working together to create the best venue for local handmade. Very exciting!!
