When I’m not in my quilt studio, you can find me snuggling my dogs. I have been a fiber artist, quilter and longarmer for over 25 years. I began sewing on the old Singer I found in my room when I was a little girl. I studied textiles, design and printed surface design in college, and my style has continuously evolved since then. I take inspiration from nature, particularly the colors of the ocean and tropical flowers.
I have been teaching sewing, quilting, and fiber arts for over 15 years. I enjoy seeing the pride my students take in their completed projects.
I fell in love with traditional Hawaiian quilting after having the opportunity to learn the art from the masters in Hawaii. I have developed my reverse applique techniques over years of experimentation with methods and materials
