I am an informed artist who has made art in many media for over 50 years. In June of 2006 I attended the Gee's Bend quilt exhibition at the Houston Museum of Fine Art, which totally changed the focus of my art. I am now working exclusively with fabric, fiber and, occasionally, embellishment. The quilts I make explore 21st century visual art concerns, including visual distortion, symbolism, narration, and the artificial use of color, perspective, and light.

Cosmic Illusions Nos. 12 and 14 up!
Have complete 8 new textile pieces since hip replacement surgery in May, and am now just catching up on postings. Will add more of those still available soon. Site looks good and busy.

Featured artist
I was thrilled to find my work on the featured artist section. Winter Wave is an "accidental landscape" quilt. It employs Japanese imagery and reverse perspective. It reminds me of the coast of Hokaido. Thank you.

Photos up!
It was so easy to upload my images, edit, and arrange them. Now I can officially welcome you to my site. I just finished another major quilt and am nearing completion on another, but cannot post them, as they will be entered in competitions that will not accept previously web-posted work.

The Kiss is a fun and funky quilt. At the top, right corner, two snakes are kissing. Incorporated on the semi-circle to the left are ribbons and beads that symbolize the snake's rattles. In fact, all the beads on the quilt symbolize snake rattles. Colors are obviously fauvist, or non-realistic. Most of the fabrics used are hand-made batiks.
