Born in New Brunswick, I moved to Nova Scotia in 1998, settling in Wolfville. It was then that I began my career as a textile artist, moving from weaving to spinning and finally to knitting. My current obsession is printmaking, exploring the concept of transferring the patterns and textures of textiles to other media.
In addition to my own body of work, I have started and moved on from two extremely satisfying fine craft businesses. The first a farm wool shop which I am pleased to say is still a vibrant part of the fibre arts community. The second was with my husband and partner Peter, where we produced custom architectural concrete, garnering international attention for design and quality.
Since 2003 I have been involved with the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council (NSDCC) in some capacity, Market Coordinator, member, Communications Coordinator. I have worked in the NSDCC office as Program Coordinator since 2009. I am also a juried member of the NSDCC for my spinning, dyeing, knitting, printmaking and architectural concrete.
