Rosie’s Meadow is a textile collage of a mixture of my painted and printed fabric and commercial cottons, fused onto a fiber substrate, along with some machine pieced sections.  All are free motion stitched as a means to quilt, applique and texturize the piece. Finally, it’s faced, rather than bound.  Hope to see some of you there!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
