"Creating works of art one tiny piece of fabric at a time."
I create mosaics. But instead of using tiny glass, ceramic or tile pieces... I use small, colorful fabric pieces to create mosaic art quilts. My inspiration comes from either my own photography or from ancient and modern forms of tile art and my methods of quilting use both traditional and innovative quilt making techniques. My designs generally start with a photo I've captured or a geometric design that I created. Each speaks to me personally, connecting me either to the people, places, or objects that I draw or expressing my affections for bold colors, patterns, symmetry and light in a geometric design that I create. My designs are either freehand or digitally drawn and my favorite medium is fabric. It is my perfect paint palette. I carefully select commercial batiks and hand-dyed fabrics to achieve the perfect combination of shading, contrast, and interest. In the end, all of the small, intricate fabric pieces are precisely cut using a digital cutter, fused into place, and free-motion stitched to create a wall art quilt that is either filled with emotion or visual eye candy to look at.
