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.

Fiber Artistry Exhibition at the Orange County Fair
Announcement card featuring all the quilts
I was lucky enough to have The Sunflower selected for the Fiber Artistry Exhibition at the Orange County Fair. Jamie Fingal (http://www.jamiefingaldesigns.com/) curated the exhibition. The quilts were arranged in a gallery-like setting on white walls. The Sunflower is a dye-painted quilted using Hollis Chatelain's method (http://www.hollisart.com/) Even the binding is dye-painted to coordinate with the background. The quilting was done with a variety of colored threads to bring the flower to life.
