Artist Statement

I am a quilt maker and a fiber artist. I come from a long line of women who loved to make things, food, quilts, art. My women were also makers, and used their hands to touch my life daily and although those women are now gone I think of them often and see how they touched my life with the objects made by hand. The maker’s mark so to speak is on every little thing that is made by the human hand and the joy I receive daily from handmade objects is immense. I too hope to touch someone’s life with my handmade art.

I work intuitively with perhaps a sketch but most often I design as I go. I use hand dyed cloth, antique and vintage textiles, found objects and commercial fabrics in my work.
