Professional Quilter, Artist and Teacher
Follow your own creative path
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.
