“Yukon’s gorgeous nature is my inspiration. Colors and fabrics are my passion.”

My love for fabrics and textiles began when I was in kindergarten. By the age of twenty-four, I made my first traditional quilt. More than anything else in my life, I found that I was attracted to visual arts. Over the years I developed my quilting skills whenever I could find a little bit of time.

In 2007 I graduated from the M-Art school of Textile Design. Juliette Eckel’s  Internet class on “Manipulating Textiles” opened up a whole new dimension for me. I found that I learn best by doing. The hands-on approach allowed me to experiment and to get some surprising results. I now work with all kind of materials. I have developed skills to treat textiles by paintings, dyeing, discharging, waxing, fusing, smocking and calligraphy, as well as manipulating my own photo images and printing them onto fabrics. There is still a lot more to discover.

In 2010 I immigrated to Canada. I now live on Little Atlin Lake, Yukon Territory, a most beautiful place. Life is full of everyday occurrences, issues, events, and such beauty, all of which influence my art.
