I am a fiber artist who enjoys every aspect of creating with fabric. Each piece is an adventure—from traditional quilting to contemporary art quilts and innovative fiber arts. Nature furnishes constant inspiration. I love to interpret trees, leaves, and landscapes in fabric. I often combine watercolor and pastel with stitches to create one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork.

It is an exciting time to be a fiber artist—we are learning new techniques and using tools and techniques that were unheard of just a few years ago!

My "Rise and Shine, Inner City" quilt has been selected to travel with The Sum of Many Parts: 25 Quiltmakers in 21st-Century America. The exhibit opened in September 2012 in Shanghai and will travel to four other museums or galleries in 2013. "Rise and Shine, Inner City" is pictured on the catalog cover.

The exhibit is a program conceived and sponsored by the United States Embassy-Beijing. The exhibition and its tour throughout the People’s Republic of China has been jointly developed and managed by ArtsMidwest and South Arts, with additional assistance from the Great Lakes Quilting Center at Michigan State University.

The exhibition will tour to five venues throughout China, beginning September 7, 2012:


I am honored to be at the opening of the exhibit at the Dalian Modern Museum and to speak to groups in Dalian and Beijing.
