After I retired from teaching middle school math for 30 years, I learned to make Persian Carpets to satisfy my long-lost passion for art. A year ago, I moved to the US to be with my family. Since I could not bring my carpet-making tools and materials, I looked into alternative art forms and decided to work on paper quilling. I have combined quilling with some carpet-making concepts and developed my innovative and unique quilling style.
I am honored to be among the only 6 artists, selected by a jury, individually invited by the Board of the Alki Art Fair, to show and sell my artwork at the Alki Art Fair’s Holiday Art Show and Sale of 2021.
