Welcome to my shop! I create Contemporary Fiber Art. That term might be slightly confusing to some. Fiber art utilizes some transitional quilting techniques, but adapts them to use in it's own "unuique" approach.
Please make no mistake about it, this isn't a quilt in the sense we may think a quilt, it's decidedly art

I love traditional quilting, but I was a painter first for years, so art quilting was a perfect fit. It combines the methods of traditional quilting that I love with the freedom of artist expression. My themes can run from abstract to stylized nature, the most common factor in all work is color, I am definitely a color addict, and you will likely notice a lot of it in my work. These days I use silk painting often a a starting point and add layers with applique`, thread painting and quilting. All the work that I have for sale is original fiber art. On a few quilts I've used commercial fabric, but most of my art quilts are made with hand painted fabric, usually silk. .
