I am an artist and art historian. I began weaving tapestry in 1976 and in 1982 became a founding member of the Scheuer Tapestry Studio in New York City. My tapestries have been published and exhibited internationally and have been collected by both private and corporate art collections, including the IBM Corporation, the State of Maine, the City of Seattle, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, the Northland Investment Corporation and Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. My writing on contemporary textiles has been published widely. My teaching experience includes Parsons School of Design, the University of Maine and The Evergreen State College. I recently retired from my position as the Executive Director of the American Tapestry Alliance.
