Fabric

Working with Procion MX dye in layers, using both cotton broadcloth and silk organza, I paint an image on cloth prior to collage, quilting and finishing each work of art. My favorite subjects are often nude, though not always human. Birds, plants, animals and the human form adorn my unique representation in the world of quilt art.
