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 quilts. I love the tactile joy of playing with the colors and textures of fabric.

What is an art quilt? My definition is that as long as there are fabrics, layers, stitching, and I might like to hang it on the wall … it’s an art quilt. Unless, it’s bigger and cozy for snuggling on the couch. Or manipulated into a 3-dimensional object. Or it’s 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 stays color and a sense of fun.
