I am a composer (DMA in Composition) and a fibre artist/teacher. I create small art quilts, and enjoy passing on my love of sewing and quilting by teaching others. Many of my beginner level classes are offered through the City of Long Beach (California) Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine. I am a member of SAQA, and the international group Fifteen Quilts.

These are samples of a type of slow cloth I created for one of the City and Guilds exercises. The fabric was painted with a base paint, and the the second color was added. After the paint was worked into the fabric, it had to sit for several days without my peeking into the closed bags to see what was happening---so I had no idea what would emerge until four days later. I was pretty pleased with the results for my first attempt with this technique. I actually liked the back side of the green better than the front! The grey reminds me of a stormy wintery sky.
