My artwork lately tends to be mindful and has a deeper meaning than ever before. After experiencing a great loss several years ago, I have used my creative side to heal. The artwork reflects that and tries to share important memories I am holding onto. My last art gallery show at the Plastic Club, I sold block printed works to raise money for Pre-Eclampsia and it was a very successful show. I look forward to continue fundraising through art gallery sales for this cause in memory of my daughter Soleil.
Also, I love to make everyday things to wear like handbags, jewelry and summery tops, so I do dabble in fashion design and illustration. I have my own local label called wooleybear wear and used to sell my designs to consignment shops. Lastly I often fuse my love of painting with my love of textiles as well, by sewing and weaving onto painted canvas.
My connection to Germantown began about seven years ago when I began teaching Art at Parkway Northwest High School for Peace and Social Justice. I moved out here about four years ago from West Philadelphia.
