I am a fashion designer turned modern quilter, fabric designer and dyer. I live in a log cabin in the woods across from Lake Michigan which provides me with daily inspiration from the nature that surrounds me. I also gain inspiration from my extensive travels.
Because my background is fashion design, I create all of my own designs and patterns. I have a love for textures, fabrics and color which has lead me to explore dye techniques with natural and nonorganic dyes. I love to make each piece of art one of a kind, and my favorite thing in the world is to do commission work. There is something so beautiful about bringing someone’s dreams into a reality. I also try and do a few charity quilts every year, they always bring me such joy. I hope to be able to offer classes in the near future as well.
I received my BS in Fashion Design from Philadelphia University and worked in the fashion industry for Charming Shoppes Inc., Anthropologie and Peace Love World. I started my own business in 2015 and cannot wait to keep growing it and look forward to working on more museum exhibition pieces in the future as well. I am a member of the MQG and have displayed work at the Elliott Museum in Stuart Florida, the Wisconsin Museum for Quilts & Fiber Arts and Three Pines Studio and Gallery.
