About the Skinny Scarf Collection

A friend of mine showed me her thin long “skinny scarf.” Having been a weaver and fiber artist for many years, my inner designer took notice. Would my customers wear lightweight scarfs with textures and sparkle? I thought they could have fun with something glamorous and a little playful.  So I came out with a line of artful, colorful skinny scarves. They help busy, savvy women instantly add color and glamour to any outfit and turn it into an eye-catching fashion statement.

 About the Artist

Saying goodbye to my nowhere job with the City of Denver, I moved to a remote meditation retreat center in New Mexico to seek truth and study weaving. The two pursuits turned out to be connected.

The combination of adopting meditative practices with learning the practical craft of weaving brought new balance to my life I could not have imagined. Weaving transformed my thought processes and perceptions – to seeing connections among things in life previously hidden.

Colors came alive. Wherever I looked, color seemed to stand out from every object. I came to experience an energizing love and sense of play when creating beautiful things. Play always puts one in the moment, the best place to be.

Along the way, a yearning was born to produce wearable art my customers would love as much as I loved making. Over the years, my work has been accepted into some of the top juried shows in the country, like Tempe Festival of the Arts, Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Fair, and the New Mexico Arts and Crafts Fair. My pieces are also found in fine shops around the country.

My experiences in making a living by hand inspired me to write a number of books that help creative types market themselves better. The books led to being featured guest on the Caroll Duvall Show on HGTV and being interviewed in The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo Finance, The Chicago Tribune, Bottom Line Personal, Family Circle, Working Mothers, Country Almanac, and many more.
