My passion is working with materials that are unexpected as a vehicle for fiber making. I have placed under the foot pedal of my sewing machine, canvas, paper & matte board. Most recently, I have been working with vinyl. Yes, the fabric store, by the yard, cover your 1950’s couch to protect it from the guests, vinyl. I think it might be my true love. I have been beading, hand and machine sewing on it from 6” all the way to 7’ scale. When it is stretched it looks like glass. Most viewers aren’t quite sure what it is.
I have starting layering the vinyl and the possibilities are endless. It can be painted, perforated, stapled, stitched both hand and machine and I am sure so many other things I am still to discover.
