Artist Statement

Mixed Art QUILT
Mixed Art QUILT

I am an abstract quilter and painter.  I make quilts and paintings as expressions from my heart.  I love to play with abstractions, texture, color and curved lines in my pieces.  Intuitive, improvisational, fast, fluid, spontaneous, visceral, and organic are words that best describe my process.

Working with fabric treats me to a tactile, organic journey.  I am in love with the tactile nature of fabric and the zen-like experience of quilting thousands of stitches on fabric to create a textured surface.

When painting, I’m am fascinated with movement and flow using fast and fluid mediums like acrylics, inks and dyes.  I particularly love experimenting with various materials on wood.  Breaking the “rules” of how materials are supposed to behave is done in many of my works.

I aim to create art with a unique point of view that speaks to the heart and soul.  Through my art, I seek to expand my own capacity for compassion and understanding.  I aim to grow as a person and to share what I have learned.
