I started making quilts over fifteen years ago after my mother took a quilting class. I have always loved animals and found that I could create animal portraits with hand applique. I make these quilts because I feel that animals are important parts of this world and should be celebrated and preserved for future generations to witness.
I exhibit my quilts around the country and have been fortunate to win several awards. The quilts have been pictured in many magazines and books and several are in private and corporate collections.
I teach classes in hand applique and animals and have a lecture based on my quilts.
