In my Contemporary Quilt Art, I create in Abstract, Figurative, and Cartoon styles. No matter which style I am using, I communicate ideas with repeating themes: harmony, spirit, mending that which is torn, metamorphosis, less is more, seasons of life, connections, imperfection, and feeling safe and well.
My Abstract pieces often explore an idea that is communicated by my choices of fabrics, colors, sizes, shapes, and complexity. In my Figurative artwork, I am often doing my best to capture a moment. Viewers can relate to the universal relationships of people with other people and pets, as well as our relationship with the outdoors. Using a silly Cartoon style is sometimes the best way to comment on current events. Cartoons capture a gesture or idea in exaggerated ways. Cartoons are both silly and serious.
