"Although I deeply appreciate the art and beauty of functional quilts, I derive the most pleasure through designing and creating my own quilt-art for the wall. Much of my work tends to be 'constructionally' and visually diverse; from pictorials and realism to abstract, and then some in between. I follow my personal interest of discovery rather than a particular style or construction method; unless working in a series. Each piece can take hundreds of hours to make depending on the size, method, difficulty, and amount of quilting."
