As a traditional quilter, it has taken me awhile to grasp the many techniques to be explored and utilized in the world of contemporary art quilts. As I learn about one technique, I am amazed that there continue to be countless ways to express myself through the world of quilting.
As I have stepped into the contemporary realm, I continually view the world around me and wonder how I would express it using textiles, beads and other found objects. I also have learned to examine some of the more intricate parts of an object – discovering texture and colors that I didn’t realize were there. I also enjoy challenging myself by coming up with unique ways of hanging or mounting my art quilts to give them another dimension.
