I have lived in Temecula Ca.for the last 28 years. I have taught for the last 18 yrs. I have been featured in many magazines such as Bead Unique,ArtDoll,HautePurse,BellaAmorie,CountryDesigns,FolkartTreasures,SoftDolls, 100kQuilt Challange. Beading is also a passion with me,whether it is beading on fabric or making jewelry. I've also have gone crazy over needle felting and I'am a collector of crazy quilts. I started teaching Crazy quilting 15yrs.ago which gave me the passion to start collecting them.I do love to teach and gather with kindred spirits which has help me become the person I have become today. I love seeing Women helping and creating with one another.And at times seeing a soul being healed and nurtured through ART and working with their hands. ART is for Life and is always apart of my life. I feel ART is a great way to communicate with others, it breaks all language barriers and speaks heart to heart, soul to soul. Art for me is yeilding judgement yet I know in this world judgement is all around us. So in my world I find safety,support,encouragement,and most of all respect.I always want to enjoy and have fun creating and at times walk on the WILD SIDE maybe even run.
I live in So. Ca. wine country so I embroidered a grape vine on this square. I also had a vintage collection of glass buttons that I sewed all over the quilt. There maybe over 70 buttons I never counted them.
