I worked with textiles for over 20 years, but in 2012, after the publication of Exploring Dimension in Quilt Art, my desire to stitch left me and there have followed over 5 years of my creativity being dormant.   Recently I started doodling which has unleashed the compulsion in me to be creative again. I have shared thumbnails of these explorations in the “Doodles Gallery”.

My roots are in patchwork and quilting, but over the years my work explored many avenuesincluding texture, distortion and dimension - exciting stuff!

I worked predominantly with layered, stitched textiles - exploring possibilities inspired by my curiosity.

I am also an enthusiastic Family Historian, having researched the families in both mine and my husband’s trees over the last 30 years.  My results have ben loaded to geni.comDoodles.htmlshapeimage_1_link_0
