In July 2020 I received a DANG! (Dane Arts Need Grant) sponsored by the Dane County Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission to keep working artists working during the Covid crisis. I am very grateful to the commission, the Dane Arts staff and the generous souls who made these grants available to artists in Dane County, WI
I work and play with fiber every day. I paint with fabric and thread. Art-making is my choice and my passion. Happy accidents occur during the making of art. I hope to convey and share that childlike sense of discovery, wonder and joy with those who encounter my work. Music, nature and or personal experiences often provide the inspiration for my work
Cool jazz on a stormy winter night or perhaps a run or bicycle ride on a hot windy day, a cool swim,
family, friends, a good book, a vivid lightning storm- Any of these can become the catalyst for a new series of explorations.
The process of making, handling and manipulation of materials, is an important element of my work. As an artist, I have worked in a variety of media: painting, printmaking and photography. I was reintroduced to fiber through quilt making. Through hand-painting, dyeing, over-dyeing, and other surface design techniques I transform cloth.
All works are original one of kind, hand-crafted artworks made and signed by the artist. No reproductions are currently available. Unframed art quilts are easily installed to the wall with nails or hooks. The aluminum bars which are provided with each artwork are concealed behind the work when properly installed.
Art Quilt Prices range from $125-$6,500. Sizes range from 9"x9"-60"x80"- larger.
Silks scarves- Shawls $45-$250
