I am an artist with a love of cloth, texture and movement. I came to quilt making with a varied background in fine arts and textiles. Seeing an exhibit of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) artists opened my mind to the possibilities of the quilt as an art form. With the realization that drawing, painting and printmaking could be applied to fabric, the choice to work in fiber became clear. My work is held in private and public collections, and has been well received in international exhibitions. I also have an ongoing community prayer flag work, The Bhavana Project. I invite you to visit www.bhavanaproject.com.
Creative expression has been a lifelong passion, having drawn, painted or stitched for as long as I can remember. Beauty can be found in the flow of water, texture of earth, and brilliance of sunlight. I love the challenge of describing those forces using fabric, surface design, and color. Working with cloth is ideal as it lends itself to a myriad of manipulations using paint, water, heat or thread. There is always an unpredictability that my curiosity thrives on. The art making process nourishes this journey of discovery and appreciation of the world. I delight in sharing what I have learned so that others may open to their own creative voice.
