I Had A Little Idea


When making these art quilts, I had an idea,”Why not make several different framed art quilts, each one unique, yet designed to be hung together as a grouping?”. Sold together as a group, it would make an attractive display on the wall.

A few of my art quilts with a theme of nature, from birds, flowers to landscapes.

The inspiration for this art quilt was taken from a the photo I took. the scene was so dramatic. I painted the silk, laying a foundation to build on. The next step was appliqué, adding many branches on many and details. Finally I used thread painting to finish the composition.

About My Work

I can’t remember a time in my life, when it wasn’t filled with art. I was a painter most of my adult life. When exposed to a new art form, art quilting, it was a perfect fit.

My love of painting painting could be combined with techniques used in quilting, expanding my creative choices. Offering new directions to explore. It was exciting.

The greatest appeal for me in creating art is the creative process. The work takes a direction all it’s own. Following where it leads can be surprising. I love that element of surprise!

When I’m especially pleased with a art quilt I’ve finished, I can’t wait to show someone.

I feel like a 6 year old running home from school with his artwork in hand, he can’t wait to show Mom!

When I’m excited a art I’ve just finished, I’m like that 6 year old. And I’m smiling like the Cheshire cat!
