“Threads Of Joy” provides a compilation of many inspirations. I explore multiple media, most using textile techniques on paper, acrylic rods, silks and cottons. Off loom weaving, machine quilting, painting, marbling and melting new materials like Tyvek, give me the most joy I could ever want. And it’s all free, well, kind of, if you don't add in all the supplies that line my shelves. One of my favorite quotes is by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: "Joy is the most infallible signs of the presence of God."
