I come from a long line of quiltmakers and seamstresses. I own quilts made by my Great-grandmother, Great Aunt, Grandmother and my Mother. There are pictures of the last time I saw my Grandmother, of my sisters and I sitting at her feet as she tried to teach us how to tat. My mother, a seamstress and quiltmaker, taught me to knit and sew at a young age.
The first quilts I made were utilitarian-for my children, babies of friends. But you only need so many quilts, so I started making Art quilts intended to hang on the wall. Then, and now, my quilts tend to represent Kodiak in some form. There is constant inspiration from this beautiful place where I am lucky enough to live.
