I am drawn to line, shape, color and texture and enjoy exploring these elements through patchwork, quilting, embroidery, paper making and weaving.

It is my sincere hope that when others own, hold, and view my work, that they feel something... a bit of comfort, a spark of joy, a happy connection of some sort... to their own creativity... to knowing that they are not alone. A reminder that they themselves are a unique patch, an important stitch, and an unbreakable thread in this cloth called life.

The Silly BooDilly

Much of my inspiration comes from where I live in rural Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I am continuously inspired, on a very deep level, by the grace of the aged lines and odd shapes found in the very old, worn and weathered barns and farm structures that abundantly dot the surrounding countryside, (they are truly wonderful) as well as the ever changing beauty of the farmland itself... the colors that change seasonally, the rows in a plowed field, the rolling patchwork effect of the land...

Along with these lovely everyday inspirations, I am also inspired by the beauty of old utilitarian quilts, Japanese boro, the long, colorful, hand-stitched rows found in Indian kantha patchwork, and pojagi, (which is a type of korean patchwork) as well as mid-century, modern, retro and whimsical!

Worn and Weathered

"Just a place to record and post my personal photos that I have taken of the surrounding area which I live in, and the things that intrigue and inspire me."
