I am a nationally recognized award winning quilt artist, known for my extremely detailed architectural quilts. My quilts have traveled in the Tactile Architecture portion of the Houston Quilt show.  I  have, among other awards, won “Best Workmanship” in “Expressions”, a Ricky Tims sponsored show.  I have been published in national magazines and books.

Artist Statement

As a left-handed art major in college many years ago, I realized I got dirty while creating most art.  Being meticulous I stopped pursuing most artistic endeavors. Then, when I was introduced to quilting in the late 1990’s, I became consumed by it.
My quilting techniques and subject matter have evolved since receiving my first of many digital cameras.  My camera and laptop have been the starting point of each quilted creation.  I start with a photograph and edit it with computer 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 of these objects.  I use commercial cottons for my quilted artworks, 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 I find it quite challenging. I have been using this technique in my latest quilts. “Puzzle piecing” is also perfectly suited for portraits and still lives.
