With a love of color I celebrate life!
Hello! After thirty-two years as a high school art teacher I moved into a new artistic path. I taught photography, drawing, painting and graphic design and are combining those skills to develop my quilt patterns with a modern and happy look to them. I have been a quilter for over thirty years and am a teacher for NEORQC and member of two local guilds, Always in Pieces, L.O.T.A., and other fiber organizations including the Cleveland Museum of Art Textile Art Alliance, and SAQA.
Felted wool has become my favorite medium combined with cotton fabrics and LOTS of embroidery stitches! The goal is to strengthen my artistic work and learn new techniques that will provide growth in the skills I use.
I love sharing the processes with others and enjoy that as much as creating the works. I have created patterns for others to use but also welcome opportunities to teach techniques.
If you have some thoughts about my work or suggestions, I would love to hear them. I have endless ideas for art quilts and will create them as time permits.
If you have a special group project that you would like a leader/designer for please feel comfortable approaching me with your idea. Group work can be a great opportunity for everyone involved.
I welcome shop owners to contact me for wholesale purchase of my patterns and am available to visit and teach classes.
Always have fun stitching,
