Holiday Sales? Yes
Work: I use fabric with my own design, created with collage, painting and photos. I sew the different fabric types, usually chiffon, satin and cotton into scarfs, bags, backpacks, phone bags, pillows and table clothes. A few masks are still available as well With fabric of the scarfs I also create unique and unusual necklaces with three different adjustable lengths, adding interesting and unique beads, pendants and knots. Combining a lot of technics like applique, sewing, embroidery and machine knitting I am also make wall hangings as abstract nonfunctional art, where I express my emotions in my favorite media, the textiles.
About: Living first in Switzerland, I taught textiles in elementary and middle schools and was just an educator. Immigrating to the US, where I studied Textiles and Mixed Media, allowed me and gave the freedom to focus on my own personal art, abstract and functional. Being half retired now, as being an art teacher to small children and Early Childhood educator, gives me time to expand more and more into my own personal art and to make it available to the public. It gives me immense pleasure when people like my creations, wear it and use. I think my fresh approach to colors, shapes and texture makes people happy, which is an honor to me. Thank you!
