I'm an art quilter and fiber artist in Moore, OK, whose alter ego is a cell biologist and biochemist. I've been a sewist for as long as I can remember (thanks mom!) and in the last decade have focused on art quilts.
My quilts are often informed by my research. Sometimes the link is very obvious, such as pieces depicting biological specimens or topics, while other times the links is more indirect. I'm interested in exploring the connections between science and religion, and between the physical world and the way it's colored by our varying perspectives. Although I now live in central Oklahoma, I grew up in the mountains of southern New Mexico, so the feel of the high desert often makes its way into my work.
I like to think I can make anything I can imagine, and will utilize any techniques or approaches to accomplish that. I love taking new, experimental approaches and enjoy the problem solving aspect of figuring out how to make things work. I typically blog fairly regularly about my works in progress, and the blog is where you can find the most up-to-date info on my projects.
In addition to making art quilts, I also do freelance graphic design work. This work is usually for fiber art exhibitions, and can include a variety of promotional materials including logo design, postcards and posters, exhibition catalogs, exhibition banners, and show handouts/brochures.
