3. Where can people see your work in the next six months? I have a quilt in Textile Architecture at IQF Houston, 3 quilts are traveling with SAQA’s Concrete & Grasslands, Radical Elements and Food for Thought.
5. What other activities do you engage in that “feed” your creative energy? I love to cook and don’t necessarily like following recipes. I like creating a meal with what I have on hand and especially with seasonal vegetables and fruits. I’ve recently taken up knitting and love all of the dyed yarns!
1. What kind of challenges did this theme present to you? This theme gave me a multitude of ideas and it was hard for me to focus and choose just one design. I started designing and working on one concept and put that aside. I then began another quilt which is this one but didn’t finish it before I almost went back with my first design!2. Describe your studio space? I work in 2 rooms in my home in San Diego. My sewing room consists of my Bernina longarm and my Bernina Quilters Edition. My workroom has 2 large tables for cutting and ironing and a design wall. I have a small courtyard off my studio room for dyeing fabric. Hopefully the future will bring me a larger studio space!?
4. Do you ever work in a series? If so, what benefits or challenges does this present to you as an artist? I have a Roundabout Series which I enjoyed and would like to do another similar one. Once your design/concept is established I think the series comes quickly. Thanks for the idea!
