Since I retired from the corporate world some years ago, I am not a professional artist, but rather an enthusiastic amateur. I have been a self-taught art quilter since approximately 2008, after over a decade of making traditional quilts. I’ve been a member of SAQA since 2009. One of my pieces was accepted into SAQA’s “My Corner of the World” Global exhibit, and I’ve participated in a couple of the GA/SC Region’s exhibits and challenges. My work has been juried into ArtFields (Lake City, SC) annual art show and competition on three occasions, and was most recently accepted into the Quilts Unlimited exhibit in New York.
My work tends toward realism, although I enjoy experimenting with various forms of abstraction and surface design. My inspiration comes from objects, people, animals, and scenes I encounter both at home and on my travels. I’m a storyteller at heart and want my work to reflect the story beneath the surface.
