When I was 9 years old, I saw a beautiful, knitted bikini in
a magazine. My first thought was “I can do that!” I have been creating the
impossible and the improbable ever since. Luckily most of my projects turn out better than
that bathing suit! I am currently working on a beer bottle garden path, making glass mulch and planning an
outdoor pantry featuring a repurposed wooden boat built at Strawberry Banke. My projects tend to ensnare
husband, family and unsuspecting friends.
An art quilter from Dover, NH, I have been quilting since
2007 and I made my first art quilt in 2009. My art quilts have since been shown
in local art exhibits, local and regional quilt shows and a local
I have also designed original bag, craft, and quilt patterns.
In June, 2016 my Cathedral Flag Pattern was in
The Quilt Pattern Magazine -online (pictured below).
My original luggage tag design was published in
Quilts and More, Summer Issue, 2011 and is available on
the patterns page.
My three exceptional grandchildren were published in 2009, 2013, and 2014.
People ask me,
Where are you from?
Well, I'm a Califonia girl, raised in Alabama and married to a man from Massachusetts.
We are living happily ever after in Dover, NH.
