I will be at the Houston Quilt Show Thursday and Friday, Nov 8 – 9, 2018!

Two of my fiber art pieces (Wolf – The Eyes Have It and Henry the Goat) have been accepted into the 2018 Houston show! In addition, my IMQE partner Natalya (Ukraine) and I will have our exchange quilts on display there as the first stop in their traveling show.  I also have my piece in the Cherrywood Fabrics 2018 Challenge – Prince display at the show.

Artist Statement

I love the challenge of capturing the “spirit” of the subjects I choose to depict in my art. Whether it is a person or an animal, each has something to communicate and it usually involves a look, an expression or even a position.

 

I started to devote more time to my art and the use of fibers and stitches over the past 10 years. Every piece of art that I create gives me the opportunity to learn more about the diversity, complexity and addictiveness of using fabric, pigments and stitches to create a statement.

 

Oftentimes, when people see my art pieces, they are amazed that they are not paintings. From my perspective, they are. However, instead of just pigment, I utilize a multitude of different fabrics and the dimensionality of quilting to add to and enhance my art. My art stimulates a desire for a closer look and a tactile confirmation that the art includes stitching.

 

I am on a continuous journey to explore the possibilities of using fiber art to focus attention on the concept or idea I have chosen to represent.
