Art Quilts

I began stitching in high school. For the next 20 years I always had a ‘kit’ going…needlepoint, crewel, or counted cross stitch. I just love the act of hand stitching, it soothes me. Now, as an artist, I’m creating my own one-of-kind pieces, often combining fabric, paper, and felt to make a soft, pliable surface to stitch. I love the making of art, and cloth is an especially appealing surface for me.
