Highway 29

The Fiber Expressions group in Napa designed a challenge to make an art quilt representing sites along Hwy 29. The Wolloson Ranch has been a part of the Napa landscape since 1903.

Dandelion Life Cycle

Size: (H) 40 inches (W) 37 inches

Dragonfly Life Cycle

Size: (H) 40 inches (W) 37 inches
Description:
(Both pieces shown at the 2014 International Show at Houston are close to the same size)
Dandelion Lifecycle – This piece explores beyond the surface of the dandelion. To some this plant is considered a weed, however, every part of the plant is useful. Beneath the ground the root breaks up the hard rock so other plants may grow and above the earth seeds grant wishes when blown into the wind. Stitched, felted and fused mixed media of hand dyed silk, rayon, cheesecloth and roving provide the illusion of depth.
Dragonfly Lifecycle – Studying my subject is done at the beginning of the creative process. These mysterious creatures span time from the age of dinosaurs until today and appear in all the continents except Antarctica. Historically people are often unaware that dragonflies go through three stages during their life cycle. There is so much to learn- mating habits, life spans, breeds, shapes and sizes. Most cultures have their own symbolic meanings for dragonflies. The dragonfly has a very personal meaning for me. In this piece I strived to convey our connection to this fascinating creature. I created this piece to remind us that we too have a marvelous and, sometimes, misunderstood journey.


Two Haves Make a Hole

Size: (H) 36 inches (W) 24 inches
Description:
Paper and cloth are fused and burned-out to represent how life exposes what we are made of and how mending makes us stronger than the original cloth and more precious. This quilt was part of the Pointless Sisters Holes Challenge.


Awesome Wonder

Size: (H) 50 inches (W) 45 inches
Description:
NASA photos of nebula and planets inspired this quilt. The rainbow ribbon represents the double helix DNA structure of humankind. To view our universe is to marvel at the awesome wonder.


Flowers and Flight

Morning Memory

Description:
The Pointless Sisters group in Santa Rosa wanted to tribute a member who had done a lot for the sewing community. Her name was Beth Foley. Some of her fabric was donated to the group along with the challenge to make something from that fabric. Beth loved flowers so these are created with her fabric. Also as part of this piece a grandmothers tatting piece lovingly tucked under the three dimensional vase.
