HANDMADE IN THE CATSKILLS
What is it about quilts?
For me, it's everything: the infinite possible combinations of color, shape, and pattern; the interaction of color and line; the ability to transform a traditional block into a modern and minimalist design; the range of beautiful quilting fabrics with which to work; the creation of an object that is - ideally - both beautiful and functional; and, perhaps most of all, the pleasure of working with my hands.
I came to quilting two years ago after various careers — first as an art historian and a lecturer in art, film and design history; subsequently as a graphic designer; and then, in my 40’s, I did a complete about-face and went to law school, after which I practiced for many years as a lawyer for nonprofit organizations.
With quilting I have returned to my first love, which is art. I hope you enjoy my work.
