Although art was an important part of my early life, my college education was in engineering and physics. I started making art quilts in 1997, after a career as an engineering professor at the University of California, San Diego. I selected quilts for my art medium because in our home my wife and I have always enjoyed fiber art for its warmth and color.
Because of my technical background, it was natural for me to create my designs on a computer. Although my early designs were created using a variety of 2-D and 3-D software programs, in recent years I have primarily used Photoshop to modify and layer my photos and abstract images. After my designs are digitally printed on cloth, I use a sewing machine to create a quilted wall hanging.
My art has been juried into over forty national/international art quilt exhibitions.
