My work involves the endless possibilities for exploration with
the studio art quilt. I try to capture a mood or atmosphere with
the use of space, light, color, and movement. It is with a conscious
effort I hope to continue the clear relationship with the traditionally
made folk art quilt. My aesthetic concerns are common to the visual
arts - in particular, painting.
