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.
