Welcome to my website. I am a textile artist. I hope you will enjoy looking at my work.
I am a lifelong textile addict. I have been sewing clothing and items for my home since I can remember. But quilting? I tried it once in the seventies and walked away. It was much too tedious and labor-intensive for me.
When I retired, I had a desire to let my inner artist out. I discovered art quilting. I could continue my addiction to fabric, not worry about points and matching seams, and the end result was a beautiful work of art.
My work uses bold color combinations. I love working in the abstract and am greatly influenced by elements from nature. My work is often collaged and fused as I love playing with shapes and colors in a painterly way. I often dye my own fabric and love experimenting with surface design such as screenprinting, painting, stenciling, and foiling.
