Madeline Island has been my home since 1979. I came for a weekend of sailing and fun and never left. I fell in love with the spirit of Madeline Island and Lake Superior. Later I fell in love with a local boy. When you become a local you find out what everyone does to make a living and what they do all winter to stay sane. Hence, I discovered Woods Hall. The rest is history. I learned the basics from the local ladies and expanded my knowledge through many classes and experimentation. I specialize in custom work.
Five years ago, after dabbling in many paint mediums, I started making painted paper collages. I needed another way to be creative. My collages are a magic combination of textures, colors, layers, and images.
Woods Hall has made my life on Madeline a creative joy. I’ve served on the board for over 30 years, being one of the studio managers, and have taught numerous people the art of weaving, continuing to mentor and encourage new and seasoned artists.
