I create figurative artwork and cartoons that are presented as contemporary quilt art. No matter what style I am using, the quilt art has fabrics and themes in common. I show relationships, precious ordinary moments, impermanence, gratitude, repetition, and response. These pieces are often inspired by reference photos I have personally taken. I craft each piece using commercial and hand-painted fabrics, fusing, machine applique, and quilting. I alter fabrics with paint, markers, and thread.
I discuss this art in my blog post of Feb. 2023 Picnic
