A particularly beautiful moon that I snapped a photo of was the inspiration for this art quilt
A detailed view of a silk painting, mounted on stretcher boards. Stylized white flowers.

About

I love the process of creating, following the progress of an art quilt to see where it leads.

I’m a fiber artist, I create original fiber art quilts and silk paintings, working in mixed media.


APPROACH AND PROCESS
I’m a mixed media quilt artst. When I became aware of this new exciting art form, fiber
art quilting, it was a natural transition, I have been a painter my whole life and I am able to use those skills in many of my art quilts.
When I’m struck by an image or thought that excites me, a tiny seed of an idea forms, vague and blurred around the edges. I simply follow where that leads me. I work instinctively, with little advanced planning.
As each need for a creative decision arises, I make the choices based on what feels right at the time. This creates many changes in the  direction that the quilt takes. There are many twists and turns along the way. The-- results can be surprising.
I love that element of surprise!
Sometimes everything just comes together and something special happens that exceeds my expectations. As I’m standing back looking at the finished piece, I’m thinking that this is one of my better ones. And I’m smiling like the Cheshire cat, pleased as punch with myself. Honestly, I’m like a 6-year old, running home from school with a drawing in hand to show Mom.
