Wunderkammer Quilts
Wunderkammer means "room of wonders," and these quilts are about collections of images; images I have collected in a single quilt.

"Animals of Point Roberts, No. 1," 2012.  16"x24".**

"In the Forest, in the Fall," 2012.  48"x60".  Based upon a series of photographs, especially of lichen and mushrooms in our forest.  But also, winter wrens and a racoon.
