Inspired by a loving mother holding her young chimp. They give me such a deep sense of love and peace. I wish that for them always. I am a quilt artist and horse trainer living in the Berkshires. I am always inspired by the breathtaking nature that surrounds me. Much of my work is done from photos that I take while on my horse, "Happy". The patience that I have learned from horse training comes in very handy when sewing tiny pieces together to create my art. I am honored to help in such a worthy cause as "endangered apes". It gives me hope that so many compassionate people are willing to work so tirelessly to be their voice and make it a better world for them. I hope that my art work can move others to help as well.
