Textiles have become a favored medium in my artistic journey. Most of my work is created using fabric collage and free-motion machine embroidery, using commercial and hand dyed fabrics. A variety of quilting techniques and embellishments are used to enhanced the finished fabric collage. As a former student at the Corcoran College of Art & Design, I am always working towards enhancing my understanding of the principals of art, along with experimenting with different mediums. Most of my work comes from my own photography, finding that just right image that conveys movement and interest. Interpreting it in fabric and thread brings my images to life in a way that allows for the nuances of texture, creating shadows and lines that enhance the quilted fabric.
