In nature, I find the blueprint for endless variations and intricate patterns, as well as a rich palette that inspires dynamic color schemes. The vast expanse of the sky the detail in a leaf, the architecture of a flower, each is a source that cultivates my imagination and creativity. Whether in my garden or my studio nature is my ultimate instructor in color and design and it continually challenges me to observe, rethink, refocus, and stretch myself in new ways. The quilts in this gallery reflect various combinations and inspirations over my many years observing and interacting with nature.
