I learned to sew as a teen and have tried my hand at various art mediums as an adult – drawing, watercolor painting, mosaic tile, jewelry. Quilting entered the picture when I replaced my going-to-college machine with one that was computerized and could do all the tricks. Several years ago, I taught myself free motion stitching. The secret? Hours of practice! Now I find the art quilt creations combine my love of fabric and design with my sewing skills and have become an exciting avenue for me. 

 

Throughout my years as an elementary teacher, I taught my own art in the classroom and found ways to integrate art into the content areas. I have had art quilt classes from several internationally known artists and love the learning from instructors and attendees. The tips quilters share are amazing! 

 

I sell my work through fine art shows, retail shops, and word of mouth. It is a pleasure to discuss my work and answer questions about it as people are amazed when they look closely and realize my work is fabric and sewing. Working from photos for inspiration, I describe my process as fluid and spontaneous. I miss it when away from it too long.
