I was late getting to the Yarmouth Art Festival this evening for the reception, so I was surprised to see cars still parked along the road side and quite a few people still hanging around, enjoying the artwork, wine and snacks. The mild fall evening probably helped, as the doors to the charming space were thrown wide open and laughter drifted out into the parking lot. Inside guests were welcomed by an airy, wood and light filled space with burlap covered display walls. My pieces were grouped together near a window. I took a quick shot, then spent time enjoying the other work on display--only two other fabric artists, whose work is quite different from mine, then plenty of oils, watercolors, pastels and photography. If you missed the reception, the show continues from 10:00 to 7:00 tomorrow and 10:00 to 4:00 on Saturday, at St. Bart's Church on the way to Cousin's Island. Or you can take an armchair tour through the online Show Catalog!
I discovered a passion for quilting in 1996, and have had at least one quilt in process since then. In addition to numerous quilts for family and friends, I began entering quilts in shows in 2000, and was thrilled when my first entry won a blue ribbon!
Having won honors both in Maine and nationally, my focus now is primarily on art quilts.
I occasionally take commissions, ranging from one-of-a-kind baby quilts to collaborative art quilts, and teach a variety of classes.
