For more than 40 years I have been designing and fabricating art quilts and wall-hangings. During that time I have taught textile art classes at a variety of schools, art centers and museums.
After art school I learned traditional quilting in the mountains of North Carolina.
Since then I have created site-specific architectural commissions, community-oriented wall quilts, intricate kaleidoscope-like quilts, realistic fabric landscapes and hand-printed abstract and nature scenes.
Most recently I have focused on hydro-printing[marbling] and coloring my own fabric. Some is appliquéd and quilted, some becomes the background for hand-drawn images and is framed. In April 2010 I created an 11-piece series named “Oil on Water” which depicts wildlife endangered by the BP oil spill. It is traveling to several Gulf coast museums over the next two years.
I have a printing studio by Lake Santeetlah in Western North Carolina and a small sewing studio in Atlanta, Georgia.
