BEHIND THE ARTIST
My Passion is Creating Quilts.
Quilts bring people happiness & warmth, and creating quilts for people brings me happiness & warmth. I can't think of a better way to spend my time and bring joy to into the lives of others.
I find inspiration for my quilts from life. Literally. In nature, architecture and even the patterns in flooring. I see quilts everywhere I look. I have a wide technique in machine piecing, hand stitching and long arm quilting. I receive so much joy from designing and making quilts and sharing this passion with clients, students, peers and colleagues.
As a 3rd generation sewist, my passion for art & sewing started as a child. With a 20+ year career in design...from graphic to event and then quilt design. My love of quilt making has extended over 13 years by bringing joy, comfort and visual appeal into our everyday lives.
When I am away from my home studio, I spend a lot of time with my husband, 3 teenagers and my bestie. I love animals and am a proud fur parent to a dog, a cat and a flock of chickens. Staying active is important to me, so I try to frequently get outside for hiking, walking, surfing and skiing.
"One who sleeps under a quilt, is comforted by love."
