"The Surfing Quilter"

About Me

My Background


I love to teach and inspire others to enjoy their the creative process. I have always loved to do art, and actually got my hands on needle and thread at a very young age. I have been blessed to spend the past several years as a textile designer and educator.

My Medium


I have been known for the machine quilted art pieces I have created over the past twenty years. Like all artists, I am often inspired to work in other mediums as well as embroidery, knitting, wood, pen and ink plus music. 

My Inspiration


I enjoy surfing and hiking in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by the time I am blessed to spend in nature. Many of my quilts feature music, animals and landscapes.
