Initiation.

I am a testament to lifelong learning. In 1993 a friend introduced me to Linda Fowler and Nancy Crow, who founded the Quilt/Surface Design Symposium (QSDS). Growing up around sewing and traditional needle works, quilting was a natural fit for me. While attending workshops at QSDS, I started exploring the quilting process and the techniques of surface design, and I added what I was learning to my past knowledge of sewing. 

My Works

My current body of work is represented in three series, the Whole Series, the Fragments Series, and the Bits & Pieces Series, which combine comfortably with my passion for photography, the great outdoors and, of course, my love of fabric. A camera has been an important part of my life from a very young age, and now that I am able to combine it with my fiber work, the camera gives me an excuse to further satisfy my need for long walks and new adventures.
