ISLANDS OF NATURE is part of a series of quilts based around my interest in human impact on the environment.

Man-made roadblocks diminish the wildlife’s ability to forage for food and prevent species from maintaining genetic diversity.
ALL OF US is part of a series of quilts based around my interest in human impact on the environment. This piece depicts a scene which has become all too familiar in the oceans of the world.
