As a storyteller, my goal is to create thought provoking narratives. My quilts marry a lifelong fascination with photography, history, and stitch, often reflecting faces of pride and dignity, sometimes under challenging circumstances.

For over twenty years, believing he was in a desperate race against time, Edward S. Curtis took over 40,000 photographs of Native Americans, attempting to capture their traditional way of life before it disappeared. Season after season, Curtis traveled deep into the territories of more than 80 tribes, documenting the clothing, housing, food, ceremonies, and customs of these unique people, preserving an essential part of our diverse American historical fabric.
