I have, at various times, sewn, knitted, embroidered, needlepointed and crocheted. I love the feel of fiber in my hands. Since 1995, quilting has been a growing passion. It has been my focus since my retirement from the University of Washington at the end of 2005.
My mathematics background may have instructed my intrigue with geometrics. In my quilts, I prefer symmetry, mandalas and spirals. Sometimes I begin my designs with a traditional pattern; other times I may look to Islamic art forms for inspiration.
My latest work, What I Want to Remember, is part of the Gala of the Unexpected at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky through August. It will then be on tour until 2018.
I will be a featured artist at the Northwest Quilting Expo, Portland Oregon, September 22 to 24, 2016.
