Artist Statement

I work with fiber. I have taken design classes from well known textile artists, but my work is my own. Quilting is my means of expression. I share my feeling of joy, love, pain, fear and sometimes outrage at what is happening in the world around me. My work is meant to engage, charm, inform, question and occasionally to raise my voice about things which I feel strongly. The process is powerful, intense and necessary. Music accompanies and inspires my creativity. My work has been exhibited and “lives” internationally in private collections in Japan, Australia and the US.
