I was 8-years old when my mother sat with me during school lunch breaks; she gave me art lessons to fill the time; this same year she taught me to sew. At 15, I was sewing my own clothing and hemming jeans for the cute neighbor boy. Throughout high school I was a rising artist. In university, I dabbled in the visual arts. Yet, it wasn’t until I was much older that I realized that the two, art & sewing could be joined. Once I realized that the technique of quilting could be used to express my inner feelings; I never looked back. I now create art quilts as an extension of my emotions and passion for life.
