52" x 60"
hand dyed cotton, machine quilted
In this series I attempt to capture the quality of light, weather patterns, and dramatic skies particular to the American Midwest. In my quilts, I visually abstract the landscape while also bringing it into sharper emotional focus. Diligent photographic documentation of the sky forms the starting point for decisions about composition and color, which are then shaped by mood and memory. Each quilt is hand dyed and many include hand painted fabrics.
