Felting, Chain Maille Jewelry, Polymer Clay

I get great satisfaction from creating different types of jewelry and home items in any of the mediums that I work with. What is even better is when customers get excited about what I have created for them!
Jewelry - beading with stones, pearls, crystals, and beads. Jewelry 'rehab' ... I will fix your broken pieces or rehab those you don't wear to be the ones you love.
Chain Maille - sterling silver and/or gold-filled necklaces, bracelets, and earrings
Felting - both 'wet' and needle felting
Marbleized Polymer Clay - create both jewelry pieces and home decorating items (candle sticks, wine glasses, vases, bowls, etc.) from polymer clay that has been marbleized.

Quilting . . .

I have been working with fabric and thread since the days of Home Crafts at Wakefield High! And quilting has been a part of who I am for more than 30 years. Recently I have been pushing myself beyond the traditional to work with fiber in new and exciting ways. It's a little scary but so rewarding! With the support and encouragement from those around me, I wonder what can be accomplished!

Fiber Art, Cut Paper. ..

I'm a graduate of Newton College of the Sacred Heart with a degree in Classics. I've also taken courses at Massachusetts College of Art, Fuller Craft Museum and the Art League of Long Island. I became interested in fabric as a medium in the 1970's and never looked back! I create fabric pictures and wall hangings, as well as paper cuttings. I enjoy making landscapes, portraits of real and imaginary people, and other designs. I have sold my work at the Rockhill Crafts Co-op in Foxboro, MA as well as doing house and pet portraits for private customers. I'm a former teacher and I currently live in Wakefield with my husband and two cats.
I create my artwork in order to satisfy a personal need for self expression. I love the texture, color and patterns of fabric, and I layer and applique it in a sort of collage technique. I use both commercial and my own hand painted fabric in my work, along with beads and other embellishments. I make paper cuttings because I enjoy the way paper lends itself to crisp, clean designs. In a sense, I layer and 'applique' paper in much the same way as I do fabric, but the results are quite different.

Quilting . . .

Originally from Malden, I moved to Wakefield after graduating from Hartford Art School of The University of Hartford where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a Certificate in Advertising Design. In the early 1990's began making traditional bed quilts which led to my current work which consists of smaller fiber pieces, combining my hand-dyed fabric, silk-screened, photographic and rubber stamped imagery.

Textilelations ..

Fiber art and mixed media collage. I've been doing art shows in Canada and now in the US for 10 years. I have several pieces at the Mystic Art Gallery in Medford, and a February show at the Medford Coffee Roasters in Medford Square. I do many commission pieces and quilts.
I play with color and textiles. My collages utilize found objects, sticks, shells, shards of glass or metal - anything with a color and shape that appeals.
