I have had an interest in sewing since I was 10 years old.  I fell into quilting after it no longer became lucrative for me to make clothes for my children or myself.  Traditional piecing was my comfort zone, but then branched out into traditional cotton appliqué , then appliquéing with wool and enhancing it with embroidery stitches.  I also love exploring art with pictorial quilts.  My newest ventures are designing my first two quilt patterns, called Red, White, and Bloom, and Texas Strong. I am currently teaching a Beginning Quilting Class at Saddleback College for Community Education in Mission Viejo, CA.
I have been fortunate to win multiple awards in our local Quilt Guild shows, Road to California, Nashville AQS, Grand Rapids AQS, and Paducah.  Quilts have been exhibited in Houston International Quilt Show, with one being a red and white quilt that was part of the "Ruby Jubilee" Quilt Exhibit at Houston 2014 and traveled for more than a year to different venues.  Two of my quilts have been published in "Quilters Newsletter," "Quilt Mania," and American Quilter Magazines.
I have lived in California for most of my life.
