Thanks for your interest in getting to know me a little better. Here's more information on how I got my start and a few of the places I have been privileged to share my passion.
In 1997, after 25 years in the advertising department at Vons Grocery Company, I retired and began quilting. I was inspired by my then 92-year-old aunt who was an artist and expressed her love of color through her hand-made quilts.
I began teaching quilting classes at Joann Fabrics in Arcadia and taught classes to both adults and children at several locations including, Pasadena Vacuum & Sewing, Quilts 'N' Things, Pasadena Museum of History, Patchwork Penguin, A Quilter's Dream and New Moon Textiles. I have also taught at the City of Pasadena's Jackie Robinson Center. My quilts have been exhibited at The Kellogg's Museum at Cal Poly University.
My quilts have been featured in the Los Angeles Times, the Pasadena Star News, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the Whittier Daily News, the San Bernardino Sun and the Pasadena Journal. My "Moroccan Tile" first place quilt were featured on the Huell Howser's California's Gold Glendale Quilt Show in May 2011 and numerous other videos. Learn more now
