Both art and sewing have been part of my life since I was a young child. I was drawn into the world of quiltmaking by the fascinating array of traditional quilts with their bold colors, strong geometric designs, and fanciful names.

While I still love these time-honored quilts, now I combine my love of art with my love of fabric to create one-of-a-kind, original art quilts using fabric, paints, and inks. I have especially enjoyed focusing on ways to depict people and portraits using the quilted medium.
