Artist Statement

In the Spring of 2001, I was asked to peek into a room exhibiting a group of award winning quilted textiles. I stood transfixed by the beauty of these quilted works of Art and there was no looking back. I embarked on a journey of teaching myself how to quilt and unleashed a love for Textile, Fiber, Yarn and Quilted Texture!

My work explores  elements of a Modern Aesthetic in combination with elements of Hyper Quilting. The goal is to add  quilted texture to bold color within geometric and abstract shapes.  To explore the impact texture has on the Design, Color and Shape of the composition as a whole.

In the company of Simple Shapes, Bold Color, Crisp Lines and Rich Texture you will find me. I am greatly inspired by the rich color palette of the Folk Arts from around the world as well as Clean Lines and Simple Shapes found in Modern Art.

I intend for the viewer to initially stop by my Art for the graphic impact of its design, shape, line and color.  Then to stop for a moment and wonder, "Can I touch it?"  

I discovered quilted textiles in a very serendipitous way and it transformed my life completely!  I hope to continue giving that type of transforming discovery to others by sharing my work in public and private venues!
