“Among Friends is a retrospective of my life work with a focus on pieces that speak to my close, beloved ties to the Hartford community.”

A fiber artist, quilter, teacher, author, curator and lecturer, I am acknowledged to be one of the most creative and colorful improvisational quilt makers in the U.S. Widely exhibited here and abroad, my work can be found in museums, and corporate, private, and permanent collections including: the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.; the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, Colorado; Michigan State University; Folk Art Museum in NYC; US Embassy in Benin, West Africa; and locally, in the State of Connecticut; Burgdorf Health Center; St. Francis Hospital; Hartford Hospital; Burgdorf Health Center; Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, Oncology Department; and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. I received the State of Connecticut’s most prestigious artistic award, the Governor’s Arts Award; the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art President’s Award; the Leadership Greater Hartford’s Polaris Award; the Vision Award for Arts and Culture; the Capital Community College Heritage Award; and the Apple for the Teacher Award given to me in NYC by actress Phylicia Rashad, Debbie Allen and their Mother, Vivian Ayers.
