Charting Territory

Color, pattern, shape and line are elements of painting that characterize these textile works. They are constructed as traditional quilts; with ornate tops, batting and backing. Both sides are complex and pictorial. The fabrics and garments are machine pieced and hand quilted. Lines of embroidery thread are heavy and rough. Marimekko, Speedo and other sources contribute to the aesthetics. These works are inspired by Florida hurricanes; haphazard lines of copious stitching track the strange paths of the storms. The quilts are very physical, ranging widely in texture and weight.
