My Creativety with Needle and Thread

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, from stitching doll clothes to making my own.  I discovered fabric: the patterns and prints, texture and color. Quilting entered by life in the eighties with traditional quilts and designs. 

My quilts have evolved to art pieces.  Sometimes a piece is a collage, or unrealistic abstraction, each using techniques and colors to covey a feeling or a story.   Fabrics might be commercially produced, dyed or painted, texture and illusion become part of each piece.  Each one is different than the next. 

I continue to explore and learn different techniques in making my art.  Working with a group of friends at the 3150 studios brings new ideas and projects as we work together to create our pieces. 

Enjoy these works as well as the works of the 3150 Artists.
