“Quilt making takes me through a wonderfully, breathtaking Rite of Passage. The experience is so beautiful; I continue to overflow with ideas, patterns, symbols and colorful visions that can be shared with family, friends and the world. My indigenous ancestors stay with me the whole time that I work. It is as if they are continuously reminding me of the responsibilities that I have to those who came before and those yet to come. I view myself as an instrument that continues the cycle of traditional art through wall covers, quilts and wearable art.”
