Fiber Artist / Art Quilter
I am a self-taught artist who creates because I am driven to do so. Creativity has always been a part of my life--the more I create, the more I grow. My goals and aspirations are simple: to create beautiful fiber art/art quilts and to share them with the public while striving to convey the love I have put into them. This medium is my passion, my obsession, and my joy. I am blessed with an innate sense of design so my work is largely intuitive. Themes form as I work--whether at the job that pays the bills, or while falling asleep.
Currently I am working with thickened dyes. Dyes have limitless possibilities as to how they can be used to change the color but not the hand of fabric. I strive to listen to the work and allow it to tell me what it requires; this conversation may happen in hours or months. It is my practice to have many conversations (pieces) going simultaneously, allowing each to speak to me at its own pace.
