I am an artist who specializes in art quilts of spiritual themes that express my faith.  I am also passionate about making pieces for healing and using art to make the world a better place.

Quilt Festival Houston Big news! I have a solo exhibition at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, October 30 - November 3, 2024.

My exhibit Cathedral Windows: Contemporary Explorations will be on display on the quilt floor. Twelve of my pieces will be hanging. Come see me. And check out the schedule for gallery walks.

SAQA Benefit Auction My annual donation to the SAQA Benefit Auction is called Cairns. It's 12" x 12" and will be up for bid in September 2024.

Cairns are a universal symbol of way finding aids for fellow sojourners along a path in the wilderness. Cairns also remind me to look for balance, peace and calmness even when our days are busy and complicated. My hope is that my cairns serve to connect us as we support each other along our life's journey.

Here is a slide show from my solo exhibit at the Virginia Quilt Museum in spring 2023.

I have created a little booklet to share my cathedral window quilts.

It has color images of my quilts, an in-depth view of my design process, and a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the block.

All the proceeds go to Sacred Threads.

It is 6" x 6", 80+ pages

I enjoy playing with technology.

Here is a 3D tool for viewing artwork. It's fun to see how these quilts look on the wall.
