Artist Statement

I have only been quilting about 10 years. Quite early on I became fascinated with art quilts. It brought my previous artistic endeavors of papier mache and photography into the fiber arts realm.

I have been “playing” with techniques and fabric manipulation for several years, but only in the past 3-4 years have I used them in practical application. What a lovely journey it has been. Each new challenge has provided me another road…another fork in the road.

Woman’s Groundbreaking Accomplishment

This beautiful star of Hollywood holds the patent for a way of blocking signals to interrupt torpedoes and other radio operated weapons of war.


Fusing, embroidery, quilting.
