About the artist
  "My quilting interest came gradually over years of helping experienced quilters put together friendship quilts for Children's Hospital Laboratory employees when they had first babies or retired. The quilts were truly a group effort with the topic and colors chosen by the recipient. During those early years I started making other quilted items - seasonal table runners, pillows, tote bags, vests, Christmas stockings and baby quilts. Word of mouth about my use of color and fabrics brought individual requests for custom projects. I have several quilts hanging at Children's Hospital. In 2005, I developed an interest in sketching and painting which stimulated me to start designing more artistic wall hangings. During trips to Maui I developed a love of turtles and these became my main topic for a time. The floral beauty of Maui inspired other works using fabric Origami." - Jan Hightower
