It feels like forever since I have done some hand quilting. Often my quilts are painted and therefore not very friendly to hand quilting. This piece is hand painted silk. I used a very fluid ink and Inktense blocks to do this one. That makes it very friendly to hand quilting and I am really enjoying it. I am using silk thread, silk batting and a silk backing. Yum!

As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
