. . . where fiber art meets quilting

Over the years, I’ve dabbled in many creative activities, including drawing, painting, knitting and sewing. When I discovered quilting and the concept of art quilts, I knew I had finally found my creative niche.

My style is contemporary. Some of my quilts are pieced, some are fusible appliqué, and some are a combination of techniques. I love bright, intense, complex colors. My favorite color is chartreuse; you’ll find at least a bit of it in almost every one of my quilts. I often use dark backgrounds, as they make the bright colors “pop”.

The concept for a new quilt might be based on a specific color combination I want to use, or I might be inspired by a photo I’ve taken of leaves or flowers or a landscape. The design always evolves during the creative process, and the final quilt is often quite different from my original concept.

I wanted to share my art quilts with a wider audience, and my Etsy shop allows me to do that, and make some money too! Also, I find that having the Etsy shop motivates me to keep creating and to finish each project I start.

I also enter my quilts in juried shows and submit my quilts to magazines. I have had quilts accepted at the Canadian Quilters’ Association National Juried Show and the International Quilt Festival, and published in Quilting Arts Magazine and Art Quilt Studio Magazine.

I love working with fabric. I'm amazed by the variety of colors and patterns available in commercial quilting cottons and batiks. My passion is the design and construction of fabric-based art.
