Miriam grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, and currently resides in Berkeley, CA.
"I have no depth perception because I have one near sighted eye and one far sighted eye. So most of my quilts deal with illusions of depth. Because thats what keeps me from walking into things.
"I often see shapes in relationship to each other differently than other people. And see them as design. So I think that really is turning lemons in lemonade. I dont view myself as a corny person in any way, but when Im making quilts, I feel a connection to women through history. And Im part of a line."
