Background on Artworks
When I started quilting 43 years ago, there were no books or any of the quilter’s rulers and tools available. So I taught myself. I think this made me develop my own style, to express myself in fabric, to stretch my abilities, to make quilts that were me. I feel that there is something magical about taking fabric, thread and batting and making something beautiful, something that touches your heart.
I wanted to make fiber art, to hang on walls as artwork, to express my feelings and emotions on how I view the world. Having my artwork exhibited in museums, art galleries, major quilt shows and corporate headquarters has been exciting.
