In addition to my abstract pieces, I also 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. Figurative and cartoon pieces are inspired by reference photos I have personally taken. I craft each piece using fusing, machine applique, and quilting. I alter fabrics with paint, markers, and thread.

I create contemporary art quilts in a cartoon style. These are a response to the times we live in. I explore both silly and serious ideas.
I created this piece just as the pandemic was beginning in the USA. There was a lot of denial going on. The steep curve represents the covid cases in Italy at that time.
