I am particularly touched by the plight of endangered and threatened birds such as the California Condor. As I do the research for each artwork, I learn quite a bit about the factors underlying the perilous edge many of these animals exist on. It is my hope to evoke these “edges” as I portray endangered animals in my quilts.

I have chosen to use vintage quilt tops because I find the old fabrics and patterns in them to be endlessly varied and beautiful. Symbolically, quilts make me think of mothers, grandmothers, home, safety, and protection. I like to think of sending that sentiment out into the world as a kind of prayer of protection.
