Art Quilt Elements
AQE 2020 Artist

31” x 23″


After many years of practicing fine arts and crafts with ceramics and painting, I have recently turned my focus to sewing and quilting. For the past three years I have been primarily creating art quilts. My initial inspiration into quilting was through the quilts of Gees Bend, which I discovered in a coffee table book at a friend’s house. Most of my quilts are created with used denim jeans and work pants. My quilt, Reflex, was created in the spring of 2019 and is an abstracted landscape influenced by Byzantine iconography.
