About Me


I am a classically trained artist, with a Bachelors of Fine Arts and a Masters in Art Therapy. The fiber arts became my art medium of choice in 1997, but my ability to really express myself changed in 2007 with purchasing a longarm sewing machine. For many years I was a custom longarm quilter for hire, but as my style became distinctive, I began teaching quilting to others and writing books to support my classes. Teaching others to follow their own creative journey through quilting and expressing myself through my show quilts is where my heart truly lies. Please join me on my journey here, or connect with me to come and share with you in person.
