Moving my Art Studio to Brookside, Kansas City MO

I have maintained a textile studio in my home since I graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute. However, in 2016 I will be opening my first publically accessible studio where I will make and sell my hand-woven textiles.

This will give the opportunity to interact with another textile artist, share weaving with the public and provide a space to sell my custom colored, fine art textiles and accessories such as scarves, shawls and necklaces. The visibility and sales opportunity provided by the studio will be a great addition to my current gallery representation. Additionally, the studio will help me achieve the balance I seek between my family responsibilities and that of a working artist.

This is a huge new adventure for me and would not be possible without the support of all those that have been there encouraging me with kind words and purchasing my woven textiles, since I first started weaving. And I ask that you please continue to support me with your encouragement by cheering me on, pass the word on about my move to Brookside. I will be updating the progress through my Newsletter, website,Facebook and my blog.


I am currently in the fundraising stage of my move. If you would like to help participate in raising money for this new studio and move, here are a few ways you can;
*You can do this by coming to my Holiday Trunk Show/Studio Fundraiser hosted by Susan Lordi-Marker on Thursday December 10th, 6-8:30. All my scarves and woven wall hangings will be available for purchase to help raise money for my studio move. You can read more details about this event down below.
*Shop on-line. I opened a new on-line shop in October where you can easily purchase my woven textiles. Please consider this holiday season, giving a gift of a one-of-a-kind handwoven textile.  Please click on this link to visit my textile shop.
*Lastly, if you simply want to donate any amount with helping me raise money, I would greatly appreciate it. I have added a donate button to the homepage of my blog. Just click on this link, and you will see the "Donate" feature on the right side of your screen.

Since learning how to weave in 2004, my passion is to create artwork that is beautiful, genuine thoughtful and inspiring. I have made and sold hundreds of woven textiles throughout the world. And none of this would be possible without your wonderful support, rather it be an encouraging word or the purchase of a woven textile, it has mattered to me and made a difference in my life. Thank you again and look forward seeing you in Brookside next year.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
