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.

I have posted a selection of work in situ and available work.  There is lots more  at my website.  I would love to build relationships with your clients to create one of a kind commissions for their specific colors and styles.  I am easy to work with, and enjoy creating a special piece for your client.  Please contact me to let me know of your specific needs and challenges, and to see if what I offer would be a good fit for your business (919-602-2260).  
My main goal is to provide a piece of textile art that is drop dead gorgeous,  and stops people in their tracks.  I use only the yummiest colors, fabrics and materials to create a piece of luxury and beauty that will be the envy of all your clients' friends.  I think my work appeals to the collector who admires fine craftsmanship, and wants something truly unusual and exclusive.
