I am an Artist and Textile Designer. I am also a Sr. Lecturer in the department of Fiber Science and Apparel Design at Cornell University where I teach knit structure, drawing and surface design and often find myself working with colleagues on research in which my textile background comes in handy. As far as professional accomplishments go, I should tell you that I am a 2020 recipient of a Materials Based Research Grant through the Center for Craft. My Colleague, Dr. Cindy Hsin-Liu Kao and I will research the use of knit structures as on-skin interfaces. I have published three books, the most recent being an adult coloring Book entitled The Lowcountry Coloring Book about the South Carolina Lowcountry, the place of my birth. My work is in the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, and in many private collections. Enjoy browsing my site and feel free to contact me with questions and/or thoughts.
