Artist Statement

I have a lifelong fascination with fabrics, fibers, textiles, and ephemera. Outsider and folk art, mother nature, psychedelia, rock & roll, paganism, mythologic archetypes, bohemia, women’s culture, mysticism, and the collective unconscious all swirl together in wild abandonment to influence my fiber and textile art. My inner gypsy serves as my muse on this long, strange trip of creating exciting art with bold, vibrant fabrics, shiny trinkets, exotic beads & baubles, and textural spiraling yarns and threads.

Check out my galleries to see what I’ve created, and “Latest News” is where I let you know about art exhibits I’m in, and fairs and festivals where I vend in Southern California. It’s also where I share new work and the occasional tutorial. Please “like” Gypsy Spirit Threadworks on Facebook for more frequent updates. I welcome commissioned work. You never know what I will come up with next!

P.S. Stay tuned for Gypsy Spirit Kids!, handcrafted delights for children…I will have a website soon just for my new line of fun children’s clothing and accessories.
