I love expressing myself, and enjoy a number of creative outlets, including baking, painting, working with paper, and doing needlework and sewing. No matter what the medium, I love creating with my hands! When I was young, my mother taught me to needlepoint, embroider, and sew clothing. My father and grandmother fostered my creativity in the kitchen. I didn’t really learn about quilting until college, when I took a textiles class. Even though I was intrigued, quilting took a back seat to printmaking and my love of paper while I was earning my degrees. Eventually, however, quilting, sewing, and needlework found their way back into my life.
If I’m not at Urban Spools, you can find me making something in my studio or kitchen!
