I am a fiber artist who creates abstract contemporary quilts using original designs. I began making quilts in 1983 but didn't make my first art quilt until 2004, so my roots are as a traditional quilt maker.

I dye much of my own fabric and enjoy a variety of surface design techniques, with a particular affinity for shibori.  Often I begin with an idea, title, or a particular color in mind and allow spontaneity to work its way into the piece  The result is often an unexpected surprise which can generate ideas to try in subsequent quilts.  Surprise is part of the fun and joy that keeps me perpetually involved in this medium.
