Artist Statement
I was a college student majoring in biology and later worked on biology projects, and I also sewed many of my clothes. And I also have been a photographer taking photos of nature at home and on trips around the world. So when I retired in 1970, I started printing my own photographs to fabric of nature, and then making art quilts way before the art quilt movement started, and was one of the original Juried Art Quilters in SAQA. I am so happy to see that SAQA has grown around the world! Some of my quilt are from trips around the world, and some are from even my nature-based back yard including flowers I have grown in my garden.
