Anne’s roots are in sewing and quilting, and art quilts are her avocation. She has devoted much of her creative energy to finding new ways to make representational images of real places with fabric, photographs printed onto fabric, thread and paint. In her latest work, she focused on detailed improvisational threadwork, creating dense color and texture as well as a story line.
Anne strives to stay true to her traditional quilting roots by piecing at least part of each quilt, applying dense threadwork to the three layers which comprise a traditional quilt. Anne is an award winning artist, achieving recognition at local, regional and national quilt shows, and her work is part of the permanent collection in the chapel at Northwestern Medical Center, in St. Albans, Vermont.
Anne is a long-time resident of Cambridge, Vermont, and when she is not in her studio or teaching workshops, she is outside enjoying whatever the day’s weather has to offer. She retired from health care as a family practice nurse practitioner in 2017. Anne is active with several groups devoted to promoting fiber arts in northern Vermont.
