Working with cloth excites the explorer in me. My aim is to discover new expressions in art that feel contemporary but are rooted in the history and practice of quilting.
I begin without expectation and allow the design to surface. I see cloth as material that can be shaped, stitched and designed to emphasize colour and texture the same way a painter will work with paint on a canvas.
Making abstract art involves varying degrees of 'getting it right,' doing something new, perhaps even redesigning the composition. The variety of ways these elements can be mixed, matched and reinterpreted is mind-boggling and thrilling.
