Why do you do what you do?I
need a positive outlet for my energy.
Why quilt?I love
the quietness of fabric to the touch.
What themes do you pursue?Communication
Issues, Military Life, Biochemistry, and Representational Paintings.
What do you like about your
artwork?One of my dear friends recently told me my work was ‘deceptively
simple’ and that
simplicity is exactly what I like.
What is your dream project?It is still
too big for words.
What is the most important tool in
your studio? Needles, as long as I have a
needle I can make it all happen.
Where do you find ideas for your
work? My ideas come from my experiences.
What project are you working on
always have one that I am machine piecing, one that I am hand piecing, one that
I am hand quilting, one that I am machine quilting, something I am designing,
and something I am painting.Then I work
on whichever part is easiest for my mindset at the time.
