When I was six years old I asked for fabric for Christmas and knew then that I wanted to be an artist. I have since earned a degree in printmaking, attended museums and traveled the world. Currently I make contemporary quilts and paint fabric designs. In the quilt world I am known as the pioneer in embellishment. I love the potential offered by color, texture and the scale of imagery in quilt making. All of this richness continues to lure me into expression.
