Artist's Reception: Thursday, September 4, 5-8 pm
My one-of-a-kind art quilts are intended to delight the eye and quiet the mind while exploring value, color, and natural themes. An art quilter for 17 years, I use fiber to capture that moment of solitude when the observer feels connected to the world. My small wall-hangings recall universal images and symbols: the sun, moon, mountains, birds, trees, seasons and water, mixed with a touch of the whimsical. I use raw edge applique, and have also been known to use found and recycled items such as driftwood, dryer sheets, and the foil wrappers from gold chocolate coins!
