I've been sewing, creating and quilting as long as I can remember; there isn't a time when I don't recall making. My love of quilting, largely dormant through college and graduate school, re-emerged when my children were born. I'm a longstanding member of Illinois Quilter's Guild and The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild. In addition to textile arts, I also enjoy ceramics, photography and drawing.
Sewing and piecing is done on the Janome MCP 12000, nicknamed "Jerome". For retreats and travel, I tote my trusty Janome Jem 720. Long arm quilting happens on the HandiQuilter Avante. In 2016, the ProStitcher was added bringing in digital quilting capabilities.
Small quilts, whimsical home decor, sewing ephemera and women's accessories can be purchased at Evanston's Pop-Up Shop on Sherman Ave.
My works have been is recent local shows including The Fine Art of Fiber 2016, 2017, MQX Midwest 2016, International Quilt Festival (IQF) 2014, Chicago, EvanstonMade 2017 and Koehnline Museum's "Women & Anger: Power, Resistance and Inspiration" juried exhibit, 2017.
