Davis, Emily

United States of America

I have been involved in the caving world my entire adult life. For the last fifteen years, I have pursued fabric arts through the design and creation of quilts. Quilting is a traditional folk art form that has a long history in the United States. I have combined my life long passion for caving with the love of quilting to produce numerous works on the themes of caving and bats.
