“My work explores the intersections of quilting, painting and sculpture. I integrate various textile techniques with other mediums to forge works of art rich in color and texture as well as movement and depth. Utilizing fabric, ink and thread, I paint each quilt and then assemble the pieces by machine. I 'thread-paint' over portions of the image to create additional layers of color, texture, and detail. Juxtaposing technical aspects of quilting with the free-motion expressionism of 'thread-painting' allows me the freedom to approach each piece without fixed expectations.”
