Quilts can be everywhere - on a bed, on the wall, on a table, in a window, on a mug with a glass of wine, or even outside. Quilter and fiber artist, I have been putting quilts and fiber art into everyday life for nearly 40 years, transforming cloth, fibers, thread, and beads into imaginative fiber art that invites you to celebrate the world around us. I go where the stitch takes me. Nature is a favorite inspiration. My recent work focuses on surface design techniques including eco printing, fabric dyeing, rusting, stamping, and printing.
I like making fabric out of yarns, threads, fabric scraps, tulle, Angelina fibers, silk, paper, plastic, and wool roving. And, I like to paint, dye, print, fuse, sew, rust, felt, stamp, color, stitch, embroider, bead, knit, and crochet on it. It is all about interesting layers, detail and texture, and color.
