I managed to complete my three crazy quilt ornaments for my sons. The green and white striped fabric was from a shirt from Dad. The solid red fabric was from a blouse from my Mom. I think using fabric from their clothes makes the ornaments special. I think my sons appreciate that too. I had so much fun doing a little class to teach my daughter in law, her sister and two of my nieces how to make these ornaments. It was a lovely evening spent with some terrific young women. My husband called it a party because he saw how much I enjoyed it.

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.
