Blue Prairie

"Blue Prairie" is currently on exhibit at the Piedmont Craftsmen's gallery in Winston-Salem, NC. It is included in a mixed-media group show that will be on view until May 28, 2011. The

28" x 28" quilt is made of cotton fabrics, some of which are hand-dyed by the artist. The shapes have been fused and machine-appliqued. There are also hand embroidery stitches and polymer clay beads included in this striking design.

Relative Order

This is the image I intended to show. It's also on my newly revised website at along with other new work.

just finished!

Wish I could share the image with you, but I can't get it uploaded :-(

My new quilt, "Relative Order" will be premiering at the Haywood County Arts Council gallery in Waynesville, NC. My L.I.N.T. (Ladies in New Textiles) group will be featured in a gallery exhibition there from March 30 - April 30, 2011, with a public reception taking place on April 1 from 6 until 8 pm. The address is 86 North Main St. We are all looking forward to this upcoming show which will highlight our new textile creations.

Also, on another thread, Echo Gallery is now closed. We gave it a good run for 18 months, but the business was taking too much time away from our artistic endeavors, and we all needed our precious hours to make art! Thank you all for your support!!!

New Work

"Words to Live By" - cotton fabric, some hand-dyed and printed.  One section has a repeated paragraph that looks as though you can almost read it.  Therefore, with the illegible type, the title is a bit ironic.
