SPECIALTY: ✔ Technical
My work is about color and small compositions. Each block in a quilt is made as its own element, independent of the other blocks. After all of the blocks are constructed, my goal is to arrange the small compositions to play off each other and work together to create a larger whole. What keeps me engaged is watching how the project changes and transforms with the addition of each color and texture.
The resulting quilts are contemporary works, set in this time and place, which reference the rich tradition of quilt making.
