I am a Quilt Artist

The Patchwork and Quilt textile art I exhibit is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing and quilting textiles. My work as a textile artist has gained me recognition and awards and some of this work can be seen on my Portfolio page. As an artist, I take inspiration from many sources, including the natural world, politics, news and history.
