My Bio

My 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.

Currently 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.

Besides art quilts I also create one of a kind quilted journal covers.
