I am known for my unique way of “painting with fabric.”
I have a passion for adding dimensional art to quilts by designing colorful fabric flowers, developing unique ways, like impressionist fabric snippets to express a colorful flower or landscape, or creating an art quilt with actual movement to it.
I have been teaching art quilting nationally for over 12 years and know so many of you personally. I love getting together with you and discovering how you create, how you design, how you express yourself though fabric art works.
I have learned so much from each of you. The talent you all have expressed in my classes humbles me and makes me appreciate how talented you all are – even when you think you have none!
Sharing my art ideas with all of you is a passion driven by the inspiration:
“What if…….” or “I wonder how….”
Those inspirational words are the open doors to our circle of friends in The Open Circle.
My art and business journey has included seven plus years teaching in Boulder CO, developing master’s degree programs in Psychology and Natural Health, authoring technical books, hosting, and producing a TV show “Life’s a Bowl of Choices,” being first Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for a two-hospital system and running the first women’s wellness spa for small businesswomen.
Today, I own and operate one of the best elder care agencies in Denver, CO and maintain my art studio business in Littleton, CO.
Included on my self-discovery journey, has been raising my family (and me), teaching art on Italian cruise ships, owning a successful art quilting business, designing for three manufacturers and now, adding online classes and a free membership group where we all can express our artwork and support each other.
Let’s create together. And share with each other our personal recipe for creating great art!
