Quilts and Fiber Art
I started quilting in 1987 by making a sampler quilt. Although I’d studied painting and drawing in college, it wasn’t until I made my first quilt that I felt I had found my artistic medium. I get ideas from every aspect of my ordinary life—my daily walks, color combinations I see, art, funny words I hear, music, antique quilts and of course from the heaps of fabric I have in my studio.
I learned to sew and embroider from my grandmother and mother when I was a little girl. I made clothes for my trolls and dolls and embroidered designs on my jeans. I am starting to incorporate more embroidery into my work.
I love making fiber art because I can talk about what is important to me. I can express myself through my love of fabric, color, texture and pattern. I have lots of ideas and enjoy the entire creative process. Thank you for looking at my work.
