My designs are brought to life with pieces of fabric and a large palette of threads to create unique hand applique where the handwork quality is as much a part of the art as the finished design.

My method uses hand Needleturn Applique and I do not use glue, starch, sticks or interfacings. I use a sewing needle and thread to stitch the small pieces in place by hand.

As of January 1, 2022 I have decided to pursue other artistic opportunities and spend more time with family.

Thank you for all of the support and love of my work over the years, it has meant a great deal to me.

I don't think I could completely leave my love of hand applique and quilting far behind so that creative spark may reignite again in the future.
