My art crosses the boundaries of quilting, fine art, and photography. Blending fabrics that I have hand dyed, paint poured and photos into a cohesive final art piece. I use fabric as the medium to explore texture and color, incorporating my love of photography, painting and dyeing.
 
Nature is used as a focus of many of my photos which are a central part of each fiber art. The paint pours and dyed fabrics are integrated into the pieces with other fabrics. The use of color in each piece is dictated first by the photo and feeling I want the art to invoke.
