Art, Quits And Art Quilts
Dreamscape Quilts are journeys of the imagination. I consider these pieces to be the icing on the cake when I get to spend time making marks on fabric and discovering new landscapes… sort of.
The pieces in this series are whole cloth paintings which, in the quilters’ tradition, were cut into smaller pieces and reassembled for a pieced effect.
Rock Stars And Their Songs
I LOVE rock stars and their music. This is a beginning to a series honoring my favorites… of which there are many. Different techniques have been used on each of these pieces to achieve the proper “mood.”
On Being An Art Quilter
The Long Version
I am an intuitive artist; I am guided by the work as it progresses. My art is about vibrant color and relationship. I especially enjoy the vivid, high contrast images I create on fabric using paints, inks, and dyes. I have been making art since I was a little girl and have found passion in mark making on fabric.
The work is based on the traditional idea of the quilt, three or more layers connected by thread. White cotton fabric is my canvas. I layer colors, line, shape, and textures using paints, inks, dyes, bleach discharge, and thread.
My art is an essential part of who I am. “Making” makes me feel whole, energized and worthy. The process connects me to my Source. My art helps me to understand my own story as well as my place in the stories of others.
