Get to Know
My education and work experience has been as a graphic designer and also as an instructor of both graphic design and desktop publishing. I enjoy doing other artwork--watercolor painting, photography, mixed media and pressed flowers--but it is the quilts that I am compelled to work on. Sometimes I get an idea like a flash and other times the fabrics tell me what they want to be.
What interests me about traditional quilting is how a quilt square can look completely different if the shapes that make up the square are in different colors or tones of the fabric. I am also interested in the secondary patterns that emerge when quilt blocks are arranged together.
Lately my quilts have taken on a less traditional and more art quilt style.
