This quartet represents a hybrid artform which combines American quilting, and Japanese shibori, an ancient type of tie-dyeing.
For Lilies... above, the artist notes diverse sources of inspiration—the Charles River near her home, Monet’s paintings at the L’Orangerie which she saw when visiting Paris, and photos of lakes in Stanley Park (Vancouver, BC) where she taught many years ago.
Currently on loan to the U.S. Embassy in Djibouti (East Africa), the quilt above depicts a quiet pond at the Audubon Sanctuary on the Ipswich River in Massachusetts. Part of a water-lily series.
