I've been a textile artist for since I was 20. Quilting is my passion and I've taught internationally, written 2 books on landscape quilts and exhibited my quilts from Houston to Tokyo. My recent passion has been to develop a fair trade business importing textiles,beads,baskets and dolls from my homeland of South Africa. I'm focused on creating income for women in sewing and craft collectives. I love the work and being connected to Africa through this work.
