I’ve always loved to create things, but it wasn’t until I lived in Indonesia for six years that I fell in love with quilting. The textiles of the islands intrigued me and the organic communal effort in the production of cloth endeared me. Batik is the traditional cloth of Indonesia and each distinct design represents a different region, unique culture, and history The weaving, dyeing, and waxing of the cloth is all done by hand with primitive tools and created in conjunction with nature. Now I quilt for pure enjoyment and the artistry inspired by the colors, patterns, plants and animals in nature, the environment that I feel most at home.
