“I moved to North Carolina from Michigan seven years ago to pursue a career in art. It was a bit scary being in a new state and only knowing one person but I persevered to achieve my dream. I have art work in several shops and I have been one of three women in a doll exhibit at The Delta Arts Gallery.
I have drawn, painted, sewn, and made dolls for most of my life. My goal now is to do something I like to do every single day for the rest of my life. That can be writing, sewing costumes for myself, painting, and reading. I also knit. I’m traditionally a cloth doll maker but I’m getting back into needle felting and working on polymer and air dry clay pieces. I have taught doll making and demonstrated needle felting.
Right now, I am enjoying each creative day. My failures, successes, and joys are a part of my creative journey. I don’t always have the answers but my eyes are open to learn many more things.”
