The relationship between light and shadow intrigues me. Underwater colors depict organic fragments as they emerge, recede, float and overlap.

Hand-painted silk and non-woven. wool, cotton, rayon, nylon, polyester, linen. Turned and raw edge applique; free motion quilting.

I paint with fabric and thread; layering shapes, fabric textures and colors and stitching all together to create an imaginary, abstract landscape that explores the patterns created when sunlight and shadows interact. "Estuary" was inspired by looking at many different aerial views of water, estuaries, tidal marshes and islands.
