I made my first quilt over 25 years ago. Textiles have always had a hold over me – the texture, colors, and tactile quality of fiber. As a feminist from an early age, I’ve always appreciated women’s quilting tradition – the collaborative process, comfort in sharing our lives through cloth, support for each other in our personal as well as artistic growth and a shared passion to express ourselves through textiles.

Textiles are expressions of people’s lives.  In contemporary society, textiles and quilts are a tactile expression of our world around us. My quilts often reflect my visual impressions of time, place and atmosphere of places I’ve traveled. I have often chosen countries to travel in based on their textiles; those traditions as well as the colors, sound and “feel” of a place are always present in my mind as I approach a new piece. Recently I have been exploring texture, color and design through experimenting with dying my own fabric using many types of traditional shibori techniques. I strive to create harmony and visual interest by the synergy of these elements. New pieces evolve in a very organic process, often starting with one piece of fabric and grow from there.
