This site has a very straightforward purpose.
The economy is in rough shape. Art programs are in jeopardy. Leaders find it impossible to agree. The world shifts uneasily as one dramatic need for change after another is acknowledged.
But through it all, the desire to create prevails.
This project is about community. If you believe making is important - because you have felt its power or because you have witnessed its power in the life of someone you know, then please join this creative community by sharing.
Become a founding member of the new Art Cloth Studios.
Many of you know me personally, will have been in a class with me, or will have heard me speak publicly. You know that my entire professional life has been about stewarding creative energy, because I believe witnessing personal creative energy changes lives.
It changed mine.
This isn’t a non-profit. It isn’t about writing endless applications or applying for block grants. Those activities are worthy, but they take time and a willingness to play by an institution’s rules. That’s not who I am. I am a teacher, a guide, an artist and a maker. The energy I feel for this lifetime is best spent sharing these gifts.
But I can’t do it alone. Please help me.
When the new Art Cloth Studios rises to its potential as a sacred space for shared making and meaning, it will be because it was a group effort.
Any donation - any size - will support the building acquisition fund. I am already halfway to the goal of $36,000. thanks to the generosity of the surface design and textile art community.
Be part of the momentum. When the new studio is established, there will always be a place there for you.
I’ve tried to keep it easy.

And thank you in advance for supporting my vision. I hope it is one we will share in person soon.
