I am so excited! This is the first time I have entered one of these big shows and I am so thrilled I got in the Des Moines show. My quilt, "Uncommon Edibles," represents unusual sea creatures that are eaten by humans around the globe. Some of them are familiar looking, as in shrimp or crab, yet they are the ones that for years were ignored. As food supplies shrink, each smaller species group becomes a new food "rage" and is eaten up by the growing population. Sad but true.... I love all things from the sea! And I love to depict them in my art.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
