Hometown: Oak Park, IL

Medium: Fiber

Bio: Before recycling and upcycling, quilted patchwork embodied cherished American values of thrift and innovation. As a fiber artist, I enjoy creating fanciful landscapes in cotton fabric and stitching. Fabric’s malleability lends itself to three-dimensional as well as two-dimensional works. To engage and involve future art patrons, I create quilted, patchwork cuffs. They are visual and tactile works of fiber art.
