Working in fiber since 2005, Pat uses the tactile nature of the fabrics to create a simplified expression of the strength, beauty and complexity in the natural world around her. A painter first and currently a quilter, Pat sees the emerging field of quilts in the art world opening new opportunities and challenges for creative expression with textiles. Pat is involved in her local and regional community of art and quilting, being a member of several Wisconsin art associations and a professional member of the Studio Artist Quilters Association. She exhibits locally, nationally and internationally, is available for lectures and workshops on
the techniques she uses to make her quilts.
