about the artist


Today was a wonderful day. It was warm and sunny. I made delicious food in my kitchen. I played in my studio. I hung out with fiber artists tonight. I was alive. I am grateful for the life I have and that I survived my latest medical episode.

Some time ago, I made this piece that was not that successful.

I decided to isolate some areas to see if I could make some smaller pieces out of it. So that is what the first photo is – an 8 x 8 section of the quilt mounted on a cradle board. I love it. The fun thing is you can turn it in any direction and it looks good.

If you missed my interview with Pat Sloan yesterday (done in a somewhat feverish stupor), you can still give it a listen by clicking on the link in my sidebar.

    Isn’t life great! It sounds like you had a super day and I hope it continues. I really like what you did with your artwork. It really showcases the beautiful shibori fabric. Hope tomorrow is sunny in you neighborhood.
