I work with cloth because I like the texture created when it is layered and stitched. Cloth is familiar and comforting yet through manipulation can reveal itself as soft or harsh, stunning or shocking, compliant or feisty, warm and endearing, much as an old friend. 

While this handcraft is based in women’s work and quilting, I refer to my work as textile art to differentiate it from traditional quilting. It's sole function is to decorate or educate, or both. I frequently use vintage linens in my work, which further connects me to ancestors while bringing the heirloom into the 21st century.

Please look at my latest work or read my take on life as an artist ... and thanks for stopping by.
