I began quilting in the early 1980s, and soon discovered a love for dyeing fabric, using Japanese shibori, an ancient form of tie-dye. Shibori allowed me to find my voice in landscape quilts, using fiber-reactive dyes, as well as indigo. My sense of place emerged in New England, where I’ve lived since 1979. My quilts are in corporate, private and museum collections. They have been exhibited nationally and internationally and appeared in various publications, most recently in Mary Schoesser’s Textiles: The Art of Mankind. My best critics are my husband of 50 years and my crit group of over 25 years. I’ve made my living from my quilts, from shibori-dyed wearable art, from teaching and from bookkeeping. I belong to the Quilters Connection, Studio Art Quilt Associates and Surface Design Association. My studio is in my home in Cambridge
