I’ve been sewing longer than I’ve been driving. I started sewing on my grandmother’s old Singer years before I learned to drive, and then began teaching elementary school after college. As a National Board Certified teacher and an artist, fabric arts is the perfect blend of what I love to do—teaching people how to bring out their creative side. As master chefs create their own dishes without recipes, so I create landscape quilts.
Quilting and sewing can be so much more than just patterns, yet that’s exactly where we start to build a strong foundation and understanding of the“how” and “why” of what we do. That said, I strongly feel that there’s no “wrong” in art, so I work with each quilt and each student to build on their strengths and reach their goals from producing award winning quilts to making simple crafts for home, family, and friends.
Outside of quilting, sewing, and teaching, I love adventures. I especially love going on adventures with my family. We spend as much time as we can exploring the world around us, through various outdoor activities year round and traveling to new places as time allows.
I hope you’ll find as much inspiration from the world around us as I have for creating art, so let’s start sewing!
