I established my gallery in Door County in 1981. Interfibers Studio Gallery is located in Fish Creek off County Road F. My fine art of fiber wall-sculptures & tapestries are handwoven in an impressionist art style through personal borderline abstract-literal interpretations. Fiber wall hangings that capture the emotion and power of objects by abstracting the natural world...thus, creating sensation!
My work starts with making my materials, foraging natural found-objects, and re-purposing materials. Making my own material, like a painter mixing pigments, inspires me to create a sculpture form or composition based on the character of the materials.
Over the past 40 years my art work continues to flow in a ever more creative form of expression. My work delineates the content through a fiber medium that transmits its meaning to the observer. It is a long path from the concept starting in the mind, passing through the fingers, that in turn manipulates the fibers into a final sculptural form.
Commissioned work starts with the art collector's attraction to my fiber art wall hangs, color and size, and art concept. After discussing design possibilities I provide a drawing, color swatches, dimensions, approximated price estimate, and delivery date.The client then has the opportunity to make changes and discuss additional options. It is a leap of faith for both artist and collector!
My jewelry and clothing line is part of a unique collaborative mission project in Guatemala. We hand cut and polish Jadeite for custom made beads and sew apparel with the beautiful handwoven Mayan fabric. It's a fair-trade project (Creating Revenue through the Arts) I started ten years ago. The collaborative art work provides a skill and higher standard of living for the indigenous communities of Guatemala.
