Artist Statement of approximately 100 words : I use the landscape of the western United States, the mountains, rivers and plains, as backgrounds for textile-based work, adding graphs and found objects to refer to things I’ve found and learned on my own voyage of discovery.
These have been shown extensively in the US and England. “Twenty Feet Deep” was included in a special exhibit at the Lowell (Mass.) Quilt Show, not part of the judged show, but it came home with all three of the Judge’s Choice awards (Martine House, Joe Cunningham, and Susan Carlson).
