My work is inspired by the geometry of the world around me. It is abstract, but often suggests architecture, influenced by my having grown up in New York City and by my travels. I love color, visual texture, and spatial ambiguity.

I dye and print white fabric using a wide range of surface design processes, such as low-water immersion dyeing, screen printing, and various resist techniques. I start each quilt by selecting a palette of colors and fabrics and proceed intuitively and interactively, adding or removing fabrics and shapes until I’ve achieved a pleasing composition. I stitch these fabrics together, further modifying the design as I proceed. I add batting and machine quilt my work using a wide range of thread colors to add texture, reinforce the composition, and provide a further layer of interest. I hope the viewer can enjoy the work as a whole from a distance and discover new delights when they come closer.

In addition to wall hangings, I make nature-inspired quilted bowls, collaged card cases, and other functional art.

My work is available through my website, at shows listed there, and at the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery in the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, VA.
