I work with textiles. Using a variety of fabrics, I select colors, patterns and textures to cut, arrange and sew into a beautiful and original composition. I usually work with images from nature and design my art quilts from photos of places I have visited or subjects that interest me . The element of stitching adds an extra dimension to the scene and makes it come alive. The visual and tactile nature of these art quilts seem to draw people to them. My work is based in reality but there is also an element of abstraction in many of the pieces. I feel connected to each creation and hope you will too.
