I am a tapestry weaver and fiber artist. My undergrad was in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario in 1977. After working as a fiber artist for a few years (as well as other occupations) I came to grad school at TAMU and graduated in 1995. During the intervening years, I have been weaving tapestries and producing fiber art pieces. I belong to the Brazos Spinners & Weavers Guild (BSWG) and INTERSECTIONS Textile Learning Center & Gallery (ITLC). As a member of both BSWG and ITLC, I have promoted the textile and fibers arts in this area for about 20 years.
- Fun facts:
- Grad school at TAMU– Anthropology – Nautical Archaeology in 1987, and graduated with a PhD in 1995.
- I was employed in the Center for Maritime Archaeology and Conservation in the Conservation Research Lab illustrating archaeological artifacts for publications and conserving artifacts.
- I retired as chief conservator from the CRL in April 2020.
