Materials: Hand-painted and hand-printed cotton.

Artist’s Statement:
The inspiration for my work comes from my experience with nature and its forces. Visual surface textures in my work are created by painting and manipulating fabric pigments on the cloth, as well as screen printing and block printing with found objects, such as leaves, vegetables and kitchen implements. This quilt is inspired by long, windy walks along the shores of Lake Ontario.
