I’m an artist living in the high desert of Bend, Oregon. In my work I play with line, color, shape, and texture to create modern quilts and textile art inspired by my imagination, animals, everyday objects, places, or the written word. Nothing makes me happier than being in the studio ready to bring forth a fresh idea. I often include animals in my work, especially birds, because my Master’s degree in Avian Sciences informs my work as an artist, even though my representations are folk art based. With all of my work the spontaneous evolution of color and design is always surprising and delightful.
