I design and create bright, happy contemporary art quilts and paintings that make me swoon.
I quilt and paint for the pure, deep voluptuous pleasure of making colors play and textures dance — in my eyes and under my fingers and through my brain and body.
Color makes me thumpity-thump giddy. Color feeds me. Patterns are song. Lines, too. Shapes. Light. And texture.
For me, this is Holy Stuff. That pulsing, sexy beat of love-essence-energy that sings above and below the surface.
Color and pattern are the keys to my castle, the gate into my garden. I adore being in my studio playing with colors, fabrics, pigments, and sensuous patterns-within-patterns.
And if all this were the only reason for being, that would be a-plenty, darlin’! Life is all tantalizing patterns brimming with energy-at-play. And, if you happen to take pleasure from this-here version of heaven… well, really, does it get any better?
I also create curvaceous art quilts using fabrics that my hubby, Ken Plattner, and I have lovingly hand-dyed ourselves, using organic, eco-friendly natural dyes.
