I create intricate, pieced art quilts inspired by the natural world. Many years of living in Alaska and currently living at 8,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies have given me many inspirational moments as well as the artist residencies I've done at Denali, Acadia, Rocky Mountain and Mesa Verde National Parks. I find I get my best ideas for new work while hiking or spending time in the outdoors.
While the piecing technique I use is labor-intensive, I enjoy the design challenges presented by it. I almost exclusively work with commercial fabrics for the variety of prints they offer and love the process of finding just the right pattern to express my ideas.
