The American Southwest is always an inspiration for me.

Sedona, Canyon de Chelly, Santa Fe, Taos.

Arizona and New Mexico. The beautiful and dramatic Southwest. The colors of those landscapes stay with me. They are so evocative of the history, the heritage, and the deep and rich Native American culture. 

I've been working with the warm colors of red, orange and yellow (oh, I mean carmine, bittersweet, and goldenrod) for quite awhile now. 

My intuitive stitching often leads me to simple circles and sometimes primitive marks.

And that all takes me to the Southwest!
