Artist Statement
I find each step of quilt making, from beginning to end, a real challenge, and it is hard to say what part I like best. I love the pure creativity involved in conceiving and designing a new quilt. I love to piece and I love to fuse. I have found that by fusing smaller pieces I can work out design issues and then I like to make a bigger bolder statement and piece the same quilt in a large format. My work is machine quilted and nature inspired.

I discovered hand dyeing fabric and now work exclusively with my own hand dyed cotton and silk fabrics. I love the dye process and particularly love seeing the colors emerge from the wet fabric.
