I live in Jackson, Mo with my wife Julie.  We have three grown children. I have a BSE in art education from Northeast Missouri State University (now known as Truman State University).   

Quilting started it. From the beginning, the act of cutting up beautiful fabric into small pieces and then putting them back together again has always held a special interest to me. Over the years, that magical process has led me to create what I call “fabricscapes”. None of it was intentional - it all developed and evolved over time.

Drawing from my life-long love of nature (especially White Birch and Aspen groves), I have begun my creative journey with fiber.   The colors, patterns, and creative use of fabric are endless.  Fabric frees my imagination and provides many opportunities for happy accidents and inspiration. My art is accomplished using a “cut and glue” or “hold and sew” technique of raw edge machine appliqué, textile painting, and tread- work.  Each “fabricscape” is completed using free-motion machine quilting that compliments the design and adds interest or shading.

I am a fiber artist working with the color, pattern, and texture of fabric.  I enjoy the freedom, movement, and power while I sculpt and mold the fabric into a recognizable scene.  Each work depicts a story of travel, a record of time, or an impression from nature, either real or pictured in my memory.
