Biography


Quilting gives me an opportunity to express my life-long love affair with color and texture.

As a young girl, I accompanied my mother as she shopped for fabric.  I loved the feel of the velvets, satins, silks and tweeds.  What a treat it was just to see the spools of thread displayed in their rainbow of glorious color!

Now, after all these years, I can still get that same old thrill from the gorgeous nuances of color in the paint chip aisle at the hardware store!

After retirement, I felt an urgent need  to create.  A few quilt lessons, extensive reading and research on the methods, and I just jumped right in and got started!  After trying many different styles, I discovered that art quilting was the most enjoyable to me.   My specialty is applique.

Quilting has opened the door to many new friends and experiences.  Life is good!
