medium is fabric which I enhance by shaping, then adding beads or sequins, paint
or perhaps transferred images. I use fabric to make beautiful, meaningful and
useful items for personal or home décor. These items include one-of-a-kind
quilts, scarves, cover-ups and jewelry.
I have been interested in
fabric since I was a teenager, and through the years I have honed my skills by
creating and sewing fashionable clothing for myself and others. Along the way I
learned the importance of color and pattern, as well as the necessity of
producing a well-executed finished product. My process has led me to add unique
personal items and home accessories to my sewing creations.
My current work is threefold.
I produce one-of-a-kind quilts from a combination of traditional patterns and my
imagination. I paint and transfer images onto silk to use as accessories
such as scarves and cover-ups. Also, I collect, paint, enhance and
wire-wrap beach stones for use as jewelry.
In all of my work, I use
color, images and symbolism with the hope of lifting spirits and providing a
note of joy to my supporters and collectors.
