She is an Associate Professor Emeritus in the Department of Art at the University of Oregon. The focus of her art and research is on velvet weaving, shibori, book arts, and natural dyeing. She has studied velvet weaving in Italy, France, Britain, China, Turkey, Uzbekistan, and India. She and her son run Mihara Shibori Studio and she creates highly textured silk scarves.
