I have always had a strong pull toward my creative side.   I learned to sew in Elementary School where my first project was a skirt.   I entered it into the Colorado State Fair and then modeled it at a 4-H Fashion Show.  I was hooked.  I quickly developed a love for sewing and made many of my clothes throughout my school years.  When I graduated from College and began working and raising a family, my time became more limited but my need to create continued.  This need was fulfilled by decorating.  I loved designing a room, making curtains, upholstering and refinishing furniture, and creating art to go on the walls.  I continued experimenting with one new project after another until I retired.  Several years ago a good friend encouraged me to take a quilting class.  I took several and made a number of traditional quilts, table runners and other projects.  I soon noticed the art quilts appearing in quilt shows and art galleries and decided I would love to try to make one.  I have never looked back!   I love the art quilt world and am happiest when I am creating a new piece or using a new technique.   My work is highly influenced by travel.  Art Quilts give me the freedom to create something unique and personal
