Visual Arts: Functional and/or Decorative, Textiles
Art quilts are my passion. They combine color, texture and design together. My designs are original or reworked traditional. I love color and my work clearly shows that. In addition, I love adding a layer of texture, such as three-dimensional pieces. Most of the time, I start the process with a design in my head which I put down on paper. I then pull fabrics and start cutting and sewing. Lots of times my draft is not even close to what I actually made but it is still part of the process. Sometimes I see a fabric and it serves as the jumping off point for the piece of art.
I am a Professional Engineer and many of the tools that I learned how to use are ones that I use on a regular basis. These include French curves, a compass and graph paper. The challenge becomes how to translate the design to fabric. Fortunately I am not hindered by the fear of mistakes. It is all part of the process. Sometimes those mistakes become the perfect feature of a piece.

Visual Arts: Mixed Media, Painting, Photography
I am a visual artist specializing in acrylics and watercolor. I love experimenting with new mediums to keep my work fresh and unique. Photography is another passion for me. While I am relatively new to the art scene I’m looking for the opportunity to share my art with others.
