Artist's Statement:

Born in Alabama and a lifelong resident, I have been sewing since I was seven years old and making quilts for almost twenty-five years.

Left brain: I hold a BS degree and half an MS - geology major, minors in psychology and computer information - and worked in civil engineering for 15 years.   My husband says he doesn’t mess with any woman who carries a rock hammer and wears steel-toed boots.

Right brain: I am a published writer and self-taught artist who has been making quilts since the mid-1970s and has owned a private design studio since 1997.   My art quilts are in collections from Maine to Florida to Nebraska to California.

Spirit: I paint and stitch images that come from within.   I share them with the world and hope that others find a reflection of something good.   And I teach in order to give back some of the gifts that I have been given.

I am centered.

I am happy.

Above all, I am blessed.
