Hi. Let me introduce myself...

I'm a very introverted graphic designer/artist who has taken to quilting as another medium to express my creative self. I've spent most of my career as a designer working in various agencies. About 10 years ago I started doing pattern design within the scrapbooking industry and I contributed designs to several fabric lines for BasicGrey via Moda Fabrics. I enjoyed creating beautiful patterns and seeing them transform into fabric. A friend introduced me to quilting as a way to use all the fabric I'd been accumulating and I was immediately hooked. Since then I practically eat, sleep and day dream about sewing my next quilt. I love to work with my hands and creating tactile designs is so satisfying after spending a day on the computer. It's such a rewarding experience to sit down at the sewing machine and create something I can touch and hold in my hands. I also relish in the opportunity to be a part of this amazing community of people and associate with just talented women and men. I'm currently Creative Director for Missouri Star Quilt Company and direct their Block and Modblock magazines.
