Magazine Feature

It is thrilling for me to share the news that I will be the featured artist for the May 2010 issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited magazine. I was asked to prepare an article, which discusses how I became interested in textile arts, what inspires my work, and the secrets behind a number of my award-winning wall hangings. The article is titled, "A Passion for Fabric" which is an understatement describing my love affair with textiles, my vast collection of yardage I use in my pictorials, and my approach to keeping my creative motivation fresh.

The issue also features my work, Firestorm, on the cover, as well as numerous photos of other pieces I showcase in the article. It was a wonderful challenge to meet the criteria and expectations of this fine magazine. I discovered that it is easier for me to write about my textile work and the related world of quilted art than it was to write about me, my background and current lifestyle as an artist. I cannot wait for the hard copy of the May issue to reach my mailbox.
