Fiber and Mixed Media Artist, Writer, Writing Workshop Leader, Fiber Arts Instructor

I live in rural New Hampshire in a house built in 1795. The land abuts the town pond and an Audubon Society Preserve in the shadow of Mt. Monadnock. Current fiber interests include: learning/practicing the Japanese art and craft of shibori and sashiko; functional and art quilting, doll-making and bird-making.

My integrative studies doctorate is in rhetoric/composition and womenís studies, with primary emphasis on creative process and spirituality. After 12 years of teaching English, writing, and womenís and gender studies at Keene State College, Iíll be on a leave of absence until the fall semester, 2012, spending most of my time traveling, researching, and teaching from my temporary (for two-three years) home in Beijing, China.
