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 and the New Replacement Hospital at Camp Pendelton.  I’m also looking forward to teaching Spider Webs at Empty Spools 2017, Session I in Asilomar, California,

Fee Schedule:
$350.00 for my lecture/trunk show*
$600.00 per day for workshop

*Lecture without workshop is at a rate of $450.00

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.
