Q: What part of the process of making a quilt gives you the greatest pleasure?
I love to gently wash a finished quilt and hang it on the line.
Q: What do you consider your greatest challenge when working with this medium?
Approximately how many hours a week do you devote to quilt making?
I work at least six hours a day, 7 days a week at my art form. That's 40 - 50 hours a week.
How long have you been making quilts?
How has your artwork changed over time?
A: The quilts have become less auto-biographical and more universal.
For the last ten years or so i have been using the archetypal shapes of circle, square, crucifix or repeated dots within large scale hand stitched pieces.Who or what has had the most influence on your artwork?
Becoming a mother brought my creativity forward. For years my artwork reflected on the responsibility and beauty of motherhood.
Otherwise, I would say that studying fine art has been very important to me. I am continually inspired by looking at art and reading about artists and how they interpret and communicate their relationship with the world.
