Technique

I find that fiber art allows a richness of technique in a way few other areas of artistic expertise do.  Employing traditional and nontraditional quilting methods, I dye, screen print, free motion sew, and embroider modern tapestries which hang on the wall.  Traditional heirloom quilts can be commissioned by special request.  Elements of photography, bead work, and weaving are also present in certain bodies of work I’ve produced.
