quilt work is from original designs.
Rather than traditional quilting I like to push the limits and see what
is possible to create. I like creating
depth in my quilt work using stitching, trapunto, as well as partially stitched
free flowing objects. I also have been
experimenting with dying and painting some of my own fabrics.
my quilting and poetry seem to intermingle.
My poems often inspire quilt ideas.
Many of these poems are incorporated in the quilt design. My inspiration also comes from nature and
from current topics or cultures I have been studying. Numerous other quilts have biblical
references. Other ideas are inspired by
my daughter's whimsical drawings. Still
others are based on childhood memories and of course my own drawings.
art quilts I also create one of a kind quilted journal covers.
