I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawn to fiber and fabric. My mother and grandmother were gifted fiber artists sewing, knitting, rug hooking, weaving, needlework so maybe the interest is genetic? My current infatuation is art quilting. I love the tactile joy of fabric and thread play.

What is an art quilt? For me, as long as there are layers of fabrics, stitching, and I might like to hang it on the wall its an art quilt. Unless, its big and cozy for snuggling on the couch. Or manipulated into a 3-dimensional object. Or its not fabric but leather, or plastic, or recycled materials.

My work wanders from abstract improvisation to realism, but I’m hopeful that the through-line remains color and a sense of fun.
