In 2007, my long forgotten childhood interest in art was rekindled when I started making quilts for our expanding family of grandchildren and other family members. At some point, I created my first 'artistic quilt that captured the attention of an extremely talented local artist. As my mentor, he encouraged me to go beyond the borders of my quilts.
Using self-taught improvisational piecing techniques and hand dyed fabrics, I create pieces with structural balance and intense color that evoke the warmth and comfort of a snugly quilt. I trust that when you bring my art into your home or business, you too will experience that warmth and comfort.
