Anne's roots are in sewing and quilting, and art quilts are her avocation. An award winning artist, Anne has achieved 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. 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.
Staying true to her traditional quilting roots, Anne begins her work by piecing at least part of each quilt, applying dense threadwork to the three layers which comprise a traditional quilt.
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.
The landscapes she sees every day around her home in Cambridge, Vermont serve as the basis for her work. Most of Anne's latest work is inspired by her own or others' photographs, and she carries her camera while out cross-country skiing, cycling, hiking or kayaking to capture the details. Anne is an award-winning artist who has achieved recognition at local, regional and national quilt shows.
