In my quilt drawing series I honor my love of drawing and painting.  Lines reminiscent of landscape and figure are embroidered, pieced and composed within frameworks ranging from open white spaces to complex color fields.  The rich visual language of these lines and markings is influenced and restrained by the power of simplicity.  Hand quilting is of great importance in my work because it is equivalent to the act of drawing.  While the placements of fabric are composed geometrically, the quilting done on top is a loose, spontaneous act.  My hand responds to the shapes in the cloth, creating a loose rhythm of shadow line that is simple, clear and meditative.
