Artist Statement

Creating both art quilts and quilted items to use every day gives me great pleasure. Much of my work begins by dyeing cotton fabric, producing vivid colors for my palette. I take an improvisational approach to my work, using free form cutting techniques. Finishing a composition using hand or machine quilting provides an added dimension of line and texture.
