Art quilting is my passion. I love exploring its boundaries; adding textural, sculptural, hand-dyed, hand-painted, and embellished elements. Nothing makes my day better, unless it is doing the same, with friends. I also like to garden, paint with watercolour, draw, knit, hike, and cook.

"Beginning and Ending and Beginning Again:
“Beginning and Ending and Beginning Again”
Size approx 8.5" x 11"
I am a mad, keen gardener and always have plants on my brain. I think often of the cycles of nature. At this time of year the garden is dying, and all the beautiful plants are coming to their ends. Imagine the seed pod cut open and see new life waiting there to begin. The "shadow" of the seed pod represents ghosts of cycles past. I chose colours in this year's pod that vibrate with energy. The rose quilting motif represents the anticipation of next summer's flowers.
Commercial and hand-dyed cottons, sheers, cotton batting. Rayon, cotton and polyester embroidery threads. Free motion quilted.
