Gifts from a far
I have a friend who lives in Japan but considers Seattle home. Sometime when she comes to visit she brings me things. There is a shop in town that would fascinate me "Bright and bold.....weird and wacky and wonderful.....we'll see what they've got. It's always a hodgepodge of fabrics and antiques and junk. You should have seen the place after the big quake!! Yikes!"
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
