My priorities are two-fold: To create beauty and meaning. I love to tell stories about women, social justice, and nature. My choices are informed by my spiritual alignment with Buddhism and Celtic and Native American nature-based paths. I often employ humor in my compositions to hook the viewer into considering a deeper message.
I use fussy-cut existing images from disparate fabrics in some art quilts; in others, I start from hand-drawn cartoons to build my images from scratch. I work with a domestic sewing machine when drawing with free-motion quilting, and handwork when embellishing.
