Return to the center of my soul
The return to fabric started for me during my teen years. I kept taking fabric and patterns and transforming them into creative expressions. As I continued on in my nursing career I kept returning to it for my own respite and creative outlet. Fabric and fiber transforms my soul and it brought me forward to color and design the fabric which I create to be comfortable & a joy to wear and yet express a part of the soul.I look at nature and Neolithic symbols and the patterns found in both of these to develop my prints. I use various surface design techniques, including dyeing, printing and other manipulation of fabric..
My art education is by taking individual classes from various experts in the field. I have also taken art classes at a community college here in San Jose CA along with a certificate in Fashion Design. I have won various awards locally, and nationwide.
