I am a landscape architect who has a passion for fiber arts. I learned to weave and hand spin yarn 32 years ago in Stillwater, Oklahoma. My love of the fiber arts continued to grow as a member of the Black Sheep Handspinning Guild when living in  Ithaca, New York.  I am currently a member of the Wisconsin Handweavers Guild and Madison Weaving Guild. In 2014 I started Common Threads Fiber Group that meets at the Waukesha Public Library once a month.

 

During a 2 year lay off from my job, I rediscovered my passion for fiber arts that got put on hold being a Mom and working a full time job. I continued with my rediscovery after being called back to work. I have a regular booth at the Waukesha Farmer's Market during the spring, summer and fall months. See the Events tab for the other art fairs and markets I will attend this year. I enjoy sharing my love of spinning with the people that visit the markets.

 

I am realizing my dream of having a studio. Lost Art Fiber and Textile Studio is open for classes and workshops. I am so excited to share my love of the fiber arts with others. Please see the tab on this website for the current studio schedule.

 

I live in southeastern Wisconsin with my husband and daughter. Our menagerie of pets include a Golden Retriever (Henry), Irish Setter (Rosemary) and 3 cats (Sam, Trudy and Tucker). In addition to handpinning yarn, knitting and weaving, I am also a quilter and enjoy gardening, reading and spending time with my family which includes 3 adult children living in Milwaukee.

 

I am inspired by color and texture, expecially those found in nature.

 

I am happy to do volunteer work and spend time with the students at Donna Lexa Art Center in Waukesha. The program provides art classes for adults with disabilities.  I volunteer with the Angel's Grace Hospice program doing a commemorative weaving during their annual remembrance ceremony. So little time and so many worthwhile causes, I've chosen these few programs to help as I can.
