Quilting is an ancient craft.  What interests me is translating that craft into a fiber art painting.  Inspiration comes  from the colors and textures of the fabric, and my subject matter. I often work from pictures I have taken of cityscapes, landscapes, or an unusual flower.  Sometimes it is a picture of a place I've never been- or one I'd like to revisit.  A beautiful piece of hand-dyed fabric can also inspire an abstract piece.  
 
My style favors heightened colors and heavy organic quilting in a semi-abstract manner, where sensuous shapes and curved lines pre-dominate.     I use fabric in painterly ways, while sculpting and shaping the fabric with stitching.   My desire is that people will  enjoy entering the world I have created,  and lose themselves in  successive layers of detailed texture and color.
