Artist's Statement



As a left handed art major in college many years ago, I realized I got dirty while creating most art. Being meticulous, until being introduced to quilting in the late 1990’s; I did not pursue many artistic endeavors. Since then, I have been consumed by quilting.

My quilting techniques and subject matter have evolved since receiving a digital camera. My camera and laptop have been the starting point of each quilted creation. I start with a photograph and edit it with software.

Architectural quilts are my passion.  I love the way lights and shadows play across these structures.  It is a challenge to recreate the perspective these objects have. I use commercial cottons, cut into tiny pieces fused by “puzzle piecing” each next to each other. This method lets me show the greatest detail of the architecture and is also quite challenging. Simply put, I love a good quilting challenge!
