_______________________________________________


A perfectionist by nature, the precision demanded by the complex art quilts I create, combined with my passion for beautiful and vivid fabrics, makes art quilting the perfect outlet for my creativity. As a textile artist, I use fabric and thread as my art medium.

My style is contemporary, and I create both art quilts and abstract/modern quilts. I use a variety of techniques - machine-piecing, fusible appliqué, thread-sketching and free-motion-quilting are among those I use most frequently.

The design of a piece always evolves during the creative process, and the final quilt is often quite different from my original concept.

I love bright, intense, complex colors. My favorite color is chartreuse; you'll find at least a bit of it in almost every one of my quilts. I often use dark backgrounds, as they make the bright colors.

I find inspiration all around me - the colors in a garden or landscape, the shape of a building, the design of a wrought-iron gate - any of these could stir my creative impulse. I try to make notes or take pictures whenever I see something that inspires me.
