I grew up loving to sew & draw.  After attending the first Paducah KY AQS show in 1985 I discovered I could combine drawing and fiber.  My current work uses paint/fabric and thread to depict realist portraits of people and animals.  My work has been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally.

 I am most interested in artwork that shares a personal narrative and explores the commonality of our human experiences. When I risk being vulnerable, I open myself to meaningful connections.

I often work in series, using materials on a small scale to see where they’ll lead.  Sometimes these pieces become part of a larger quilt, or they might stand on their own.  Working in series allows me the freedom to make mistakes and I enjoy watching each piece improve and become more focused.

As I create abstract designs I experiment with color, pattern and shape on the design wall, and plan the entire piece before sewing anything together.  Inspiration comes from the interplay of patterns and color, and concepts such as flow, synchronicity, and (dis)harmony.

History: Discovered how much I loved to sew when I joined the 4-H club as a teenager. I continued all kinds of 
sewing projects throughout my life. Recently I became fascinated with fiber arts and decided to join CQAFA.

Process: I form a plan on paper, make  pattern pieces, and formulate a color plan.

Inspiration: Contemporary Art

What I find most exciting about Fiber Art

is the variety of ways

cloth and fibers can be assembled

and how beautifully this art form

accepts surface embellishments.

After retirement, and inspired by the fiber medium, I bought a sewing machine and climbed onto a brand new learning curve.

Coming from a background of science I find comfort in Clarity. 

I create by virtue of the safety of nature, through the focus of my camera while implementing a dominant process of free motion stitching.

I am a thread painter.

 I draw, cut and stitch my way creatively, sometimes adding paint and other embellishment.  I use both literal and abstracted views to share my impressions of life. I sometimes say I create for my own amazement and amusement, but it is more than that; I enjoy sharing my visual thoughts with others.  I am happiest when I am creating.

Amish quilts were my inspiration to view fabric as art. The vibrant colors and sparkle mesmerized me.  As I tried to emulate the magic of those quilts, I found working with fabric and color relaxing and soothing.  Working with various artists is helping me become more improvisational as I find my way as an artist.
