I am currently a member of Studio Fiber Arts at The Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia. My passion for Fiber began in college and I became immersed in quilting in 1993 when I took a class and created a beautiful jacket; I haven’t looked back since.
I continue to take a variety workshops and classes, enter national and international quilt shows, and I am active in various local and national guilds including the Fiber Artists@loose ends art group. I spend my studio time creating mixed media quilts and wearable art utilizing hand and machine sewing techniques.
I specialize in creating one-of-a-kind pieces and have also been making art for health care spaces including The University of Michigan Cancer Center and The Auburn University Women’s Health Resource Center. My art can be seen on my website which I update regularly with new work.
In March 2009, I was privileged to be interviewed by Karen Musgrave, for The Quilt Alliance “Save Our Stories” project, which captures and archives the stories of quilters and their quilts. My piece Encouraging Words was featured in this interview and is currently on display at The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
