Artist Statement

My fabric art quilts are all about Color! Texture! Movement! I make large and small wall art and fiber pieces; Nature, Abstract and Mexican inspired collages. Recently, I have returned to making more political art quilts. Let Us Breathe, was accepted into a juried international show, Racism: In face of Hate We Resist with 7 venues throughout 2020-2021. Juried Open Studios artist, studio located in the Santa Cruz Art Center, 1001 Center St. Downtown Santa Cruz.

I was born and raised in Palo Alto, California. I took two years of sewing in high school and I have sewn many of my own clothes. I started quilting in the 1970s and stopped counting my bed quilts at 300.I ran out of beds and turned my attention to wall art. In 2010, I  was juried  into my first  art show. The following year this same quilt, Great Blue Heron at Dusk won a merit award at Olive Hyde Art Guild in Fremont. I was encouraged to continue in this new direction.I was born and raised in Palo Alto, California. I took two years of sewing in high school and I have sewn many of my own clothes.
