My aim is to incorporate my life long experience as a healer into this medium – thus I refer to my works as Conscious Quilts.  I use the processes of sewing, piecing, quilting and embellishment (with thread, beads and/or paint) as a meditation.  My development as an artist is now mirroring my spiritual path.

From here, it gives me great pleasure to reintegrate these forms back together in abstract patterns. Learn more about my work on My Bio page.
