ArtQuilts use many of the materials and techniques of traditional quilting, but use them in nontraditional ways. ArtQuilts also often incorporate unexpected materials and techniques, such as metallic mesh, beads, paint, and transfer media.

My ArtQuilts are original, one-of-a-kind creations, intended to hang on a wall, just like a painting. Like paintings, they have a flat color/design element. But ArtQuilts also have texture--a three-dimensionality contributed by the stitching superimposed over the flat design. This extra dimension adds sparkle, depth, and complexity, and gives the works a very tactile appeal.
