A life-long passion with Artistic Expression led me to a formal education in Fashion Design using Haute Couture methods and in Multimedia Design. My training and years of practice, have led me to a creatively rewarding life dedicated to Design and Visual Arts. My focus is on Textile Arts, with a culmination of bits and pieces, techniques and styles from other mediums I have immersed myself in at different points in the past.

Embroidery meets Photography – A new collaboration with my husband – Hackphotographer  – Traverse

Since 2000, I have worked in Adult Education, as a Part-time Professor in Multi-Media Arts, as an Arts Program Coordinator and in Program Development/Academic Management at the college level and have been honoured to teach Private Arts Workshops to people of all ages since, in designing myself a passionate career in Arts and Design. After a serious illness and treatment in 2014-2015, my creativity soared and my continued purpose in sharing my skills as a Professional Artist became even more important to me. I now have a focus on teaching Meditative Arts and Needlework Workshops with the intent of helping people awaken to pursue their creative genius.

Writing is a passion that I continue to explore in relation to my work as a Visual Artist. I look forward to seeing where that might take me and I am open to all possibilities.
