“Lepidoptera” on the cover


A slice of my piece “Lepidoptera” is on the cover of the February issue of Genetics in Medicine, the magazine of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics. A friend from my graduate school days at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism, Karyn Hede, is News Editor, and suggested they use my work on the cover. Thanks, Karyn! 


It is based on a photograph I took of a Painted Lady Butterfly. It is a wholecloth quilt, painted with acrylic fabric paint and then quilted. Lepidoptera is the order of insects that includes butterflies and moths.

  1. That is a beautiful piece and it looks beautiful on the cover. Have enjoyed your morning walks, still waiting for spring to arrive so I can get out again. I wanted to come over and say hi when you were here, but we all came down with the horrid cold going around, so I didn't want to make anyone sick.

  4. Perfect use for your work. I'd recognize it anywhere....but I probably won't be reading any medical journals anytime soon.
