I love the challenge of interpreting architectural structures with fabric and thread – using perspective and value to make them look solid and three-dimensional. 

My inspiration for this art quilt: a massive piece of public art located in Westminster Pier Park, in New Westminster BC.  The WOW Westminster is a 140-foot installation, comprising 4 forty-foot shipping containers precariously cantilevered to form a W-shape.  It was designed by Brazilian artist José Resende and was installed in 2015.

Techniques: Constructed using fused raw-edge applique and folded-edge applique. Machine pieced and machine quilted.
