On September 16th, the SAQA Benefit Auction will begin.

This link takes you to a complete explanation of how the auction works.

If you follow this link it takes you to my donated piece.  Each are 12 x 12″ quilts and you’ll have 437 pieces of art to choose from!


In The Light Shines Through, I began with a photo of some of my Black Cohosh in dappled light where the sun pokes through some of the leaves and shade still dominates the landscape. I pieced various cloths together, but each piece has something of the same quality of light.  The black is a discharged cotton; where the black is removed, it leaves behind a light brown color that remains on the surface. All of the various hand dyed fabrics share that magic of elusive light. In the upper left corner is a “prayer bundle,” an element that has become something of a signature on many of my works.  As I make these small bundles I say a prayer that gets wrapped into the small bundle.  It may be a spiritual wish for the owner of the piece or a more ephemeral hope and prayer for the universe.

You’d be smart to check it out now to figure out what you may want to bid on before the bidding begins.

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.
