From the artist:

The art quilts I create are inspired by my love of color.  Explorations of hue, tone, and value, they are journeys of discovery into the tension or harmony that can be created by the play of color across a fabric surface.  I work in abstract design, which allows me the freedom to experiment with color, line, and shape in constructing geometric and free form compositions.  My work is pieced and machine quilted, using both self-dyed and commercial fabrics.

 

Working within the framework of a selected color palette, I create my pieces in an improvisational manner.  Individual blocks are arranged and layered, the design gradually developing as the changing interplay of colors and shapes leads me forward.  As I work the design is always in flux – the emerging color/shape combinations constantly suggesting new directions to pursue.  Once complete, machine quilting serves as the final bonding element; physically, as confirmation that the design process is complete, and visually, providing a unifying textural depth to the finished piece.
