Art Textiles

Unique Scarves, Shawls and Wearables


I have had a life-long passion for textiles, first learning to sew more than 50 years ago and later picking up expertise in pattern-making, dyeing and weaving. More interested in color and texture than overall pattern, I weave and dye unique scarves, shawls and wearable fabrics inspired by my experience of the natural world.


The items pictured on this site are representative of the projects I make. My studio in Portland, OR is open by appointment; please contact me to schedule a visit.
