My lecture “Finding Your Passion and Running With It” includes a large trunk show of my quilts when the event is in driving distance.

I now have my second lecture which follows and builds on my first lecture called  “Cre-a-tiv-i-ty” – which one to choose?  If I have spoken with your guild already, this is the perfect lecture for a return visit.  I offer a variety of classes for all skill levels and many classes can complete their projects in one day, which builds confidence! I have a new lecture on creativity too.

I look forward to sharing my Passion for Quilting with you.

I do commission work for public and private collections and have pieces at UCI Medical, Kaiser Anaheim, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), and the  Navel  Hospital Camp Pendleton.

$500.00 for my lecture/trunk show*
$650.00 per day for workshop

*Lecture & Workshop together get a $100.00 discount = $1050.00

I have a long list of classes available which you can review on this website.

Biography

Art has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I remember always being intrigued and absorbed with making things. My mother encouraged my exploration of all things creative and my life-long creative journey took off including painting, sewing, photography, ceramics, embroidery, gardening just to name a few.

My style, my passion, my energy is boundless… I love discovering, I love looking, I love seeing, I love the way others see, and I love doing!

I don’t worry about doing it wrong…. There is no such thing in the creative process. I like how Albert Einstein said, “The easiest way to be creative: try something different, even if you don’t think it will work.”

I look forward to sharing my story, work and passion with you.
