I call my work Art Quilts.
Color is the most important element in my work. Bright saturated colors that make the heart pound faster, the pupils dilate and the hands desire to reach out to touch. The look and feel of fabric gives a tactile sense of the familiar.
My designs are stylized but recognizable. Some are more abstract and yet familiar. Many look three dimensional as if one could reach inside the shapes. Curves create movement and excitement. Thread work adds depth and texture.
In the end my ideas are created in fabric for everyone to see and contemplate. Please let them take you down a road of curiosity, wonderment and joy as your eyes dance around!
