Bridger, MT and Tucson, AZ
While I have admired and dabbled in traditional “women’s arts” such as needlepoint, knitting, crochet and crewel work since childhood, I never took to them permanently until I came across quilting in 1998. Over the more than 20 years since then I’ve remained addicted to the beauty of quilts from traditional to contemporary and to the fabric and thread – both commercial and hand-dyed – used to make them.
I make both traditional quilts and contemporary fiber art pieces. What they have in common is my love of color and graphic design and the way I combine these two elements to make a strong visual impact. The quilts featured here use recycled men’s neckties collected over a number of years.
