Fiber Artist

I use quilting techniques to create contemporary fiber art.  The combination of fabric, thread, batting, and on occasion, embellishment, results in an amazing visual experience.  What “ties the ribbon” on the experience is depicting my inspirations (family, nature, music, faith) in remarkable color and shape that reflects these foundations for living. My work is very colorful with bold lines.  I use every bit of what I create – my pieces made from scraps can be better and more interesting than the primary piece from which they came.  It’s a funny thing how the little bits are sometimes better than the major undertaking.  This is often a true reflection of my life.
