I’m so excited to see that my art quilt, Origins, is on the cover of SAQA’s Art Quilt Quarterly in the next issue due out next month!

After I received the recent issue of the SAQA Journal, I brought it in to bed with me.  As I was about to nod off I turned to see one last page and I was suddenly wide awake when I saw a pic of my Five Degrees Of Freedom in the Member’s Gallery!

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.
