Abstract photography allows me the freedom to discover and explore my subject from a fresh perspective, for the sheer beauty of its characteristics. I play with various techniques, Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), selective focus, and multiple exposure, providing an impressionist approach to my photographs, allowing my camera to be a paintbrush on canvas.

Exploring this expanse between photography and painting, I use ICM and multiple exposure to create painterly sketches. This unique process can transition mundane city scenes into something fresh and contemporary — painterly photographs with wispy layers of watercolor-like texture.

Another abstract style that I enjoy is photographing the surreal display often found in reflections — windows, architectural buildings, and water. Although these images may appear to be taken as double exposures, each image is captured in a single shot that reflects a moment-in-time.

Please enjoy my variety of galleries and return often to see what is new.

All of my images are available as prints. Visit my online store to purchase the framed prints that I have in stock or contact me if you would like to order other prints.

If you are local or visiting Knoxville, TN, my work is available downtown at The Art Market Gallery on 422 South Gay Street.

I have been working as a professional textile artist since the early 1970's. Over the years I have migrated from working with cotton quilting fabrics to the more versatile home decor fabric lines. 

Currently, I am enjoying the challenge of creating vessel forms where I can push my own limits as well as the limits of technique and materials. The wide variety of patterns, texture and weave of designer fabrics allows me to create designs that impersonate other materials, so my work falls somewhere between quilting, basketry, pottery, and sculpture. 

Unlike clay, which can be molded into forms, fabric needs to be cut, folded, then stitched to achieve the desired shape — a fiber origami of sorts. Each vessel is enhanced with distinctive trims and embellishments to ensure a one-of-a-kind handcrafted piece of art.

For over a decade, I designed art quilts and self-published patterns/books through my company, The Picket Fence. I exhibited at International Quilt Festivals and trade shows across the United States. Teaching workshops included PBS, HGTV and many hands-on workshops. Although I am no longer actively designing under The Picket Fence, some patterns are available in limited quantities.
