I am an art quilter. Some of the art quilts I’ve made are portraits and landscapes. I like to use different technical means to create images, and my medium is cloth. This is my landscape quilt based on a photograph of Illiers-Combray, the town in France where Marcel Proust spent his summers. The title is “How the light falls on Illiers-Combray”. I hand dyed much of the fabric. The light in the picture comes from the left. It was exhibited at the 2015 Tulip Time quilt show in Holland, Michigan.
I also do traditional quilts, often for babies and children so they have something special. Here is my quilt for Peter Hooper. Peter likes dinosaurs and numbers and I chose fabrics from Spoonflower.com, depicting each of these themes, for his quilt.
This is the Dorothy Quilt, a baby quilt made for a baby named Dorothy, my name too. It was made from “Wizard of Oz” fabric.
And here is one of my recent quilts:
and another of a special place, Rainbow Bend, for Karen, the admin at our office:
