Contemporary Quilt Art has all the narrative, storytelling, and design of modern paintings. The fabrics I use communicate with the viewer using many unique voices. I create Contemporary Quilt Art in Abstract, Figurative, and Cartoon styles, and sometimes combine styles. My pieces are sometimes a narrative about seasons of life, or in response to the times in which we live. My Abstract pieces often explore an idea that is communicated by the choices of fabrics, colors, 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. Using a silly Cartoon style is sometimes the best way to comment on current events.
