I usually get my inspiration from the nature. I take a lot of pictures but making a quilt I don't replicate the picture. I get inspired by colors, lines and shapes.
Walking on the cement sidewalk, I noticed a dandelion growing out through the crack.
I was amazed by the power of this humble flower and a lust for life it had. It was so inspirational to think that we can always find ways to overcome our own hurdles.
I dye my own fabrics now. Living in
the only way to have a range of colors that would let me feel free working on
quilts. I had 15 shades of gray and that was the start. Lithuania

I made this realistically looking quilt and then I thought: hmm... I don't think this is what I want. I made another quilt that I named Breaking Through and I submitted them both for Concrete&Grassland show.
