Artfully pieced original creations The challenge of using line, shape, color and contrast to interpret what I see is my objective. If I create something that will evoke emotion in the viewer, then I have truly succeeded.


Lavender Honey - It’s spring and I have been influenced by sunshine, new green foliage and all the colors of the rainbow that flowers display. After a colorless winter, it felt good to pick out fresh, bright fabrics and work with them to create Lavender Honey, my latest work . This isn’t any one scene, but rather a […]

Working in a Series? - I have never found myself working in a series, somehow the inspirations for my work never seem to follow that path.

The piece features birds and circles – two subjects that I keep returning to in my work. Birds have always fascinated me and I love to watch them. Several years ago I did a […]
Where the Neon Lilies Grow - I have had a lot of fun with my most recently finished piece, Where the Neon Lilies Grow! It’s been a great chance to get out some gorgeously colorful fabrics that I have been collecting and saving for that perfect project. One fabric that I really love is from Alexander Henry – it consists of bold lines […]
Large vs. Small? - Those of you familiar with my work know that I typically create on a large scale – at least 3 to 4 feet on up to 5 or 6 feet on any one side. I love the larger scale to show off the fabric patterns that I use as well as having room to express all the elements that […]
Australian Patchwork and Quilting - I am very excited by a copy of Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine that I received in the mail that has an interview of me and wonderful images (one a full page in size) of my work – thank you Jessica Harlow for such a nice article!  
Straight Furrows off to New Guinea - I’m very excited to have a second piece of work chosen by the U.S. Art in Embassies Program!

Yesterday Straight Furrows was picked up to start its’ journey to the embassy in Port Moresby, New Guinea. I was […]
