She began to be seriously interested in art quilting and thread painting for the past few years, and many of her art quilts have also been award winners at major shows, including “Best Wall Quilt” at the 2021 and 2022 PIQF and Quiltfest Greenville in 2022. She was also interviewed about her work on her quilt “Toroweap Overlook” by the Grand Canyon Historical Society, which put her into the archives there as an artist of the Grand Canyon. The same quilt won a 2nd place ribbon at Road to California in 2023, and a Best Wall Quilt ribbon at the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival in 2023.
She has written about her realistic style for “American Quilter” magazine (Jan. 2021 issue).
With a Bachelors degree in Science, and a background in teaching, being in the classroom has been very comfortable for her, and she enjoys sharing her techniques with others. She has also hosted international quilt tours, and has taught internationally as well as throughout the USA.
