I make colorful quilts, ladies' clothing and other sewn items ( purses, placemats, dolls, and doll clothes) from 100% cotton fabrics. I specialize in using Cotton Batiks from India and Indonesia. Some of my pieces also incorporate silks.
Besides using a few traditional quilt patterns most of my designs I draw myself. The majority of my work features wild flowers and fish. They are bright and cheerful and many are embellished with gemstones and beads. I try to use natural finds, if possible.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York, grew up on Long Island and have lived in Maine most of my adult life. I prefer the quiet and peace of living near the ocean.
