About

I grew up on a farm, modeled for a major department store, trained as a classical violinist and was a junior member of a symphony orchestra at age 13. I've also shown horses in the professional arena and have had some training in opera. Then I graduated from high school and majored in Art and Ancient History in college. Married the love of my life, a Viet Nam vet, and have a beautiful talented daughter who married a wonderful man.
Exhibiting in juried craft shows after I got married and designing handpainted needlepoint canvases taught me that I just don't have the temperament to deal with the politics involved, so I just make things for myself and those I love. Besides, there are so many different forms of needlework and art out there, I want to learn them all!!!
Grandmother taught me needlework when I was two years old, it has been the one constant in my life and has kept me sane. VBG.
I collect books…

I collect books (miniature and full sized), post cards, ephemera, cat figurines, vintage tatting cotton, quilting fabric, tatting shuttles, thimbles, beads, buttons, modern marbles, and anything unusual that catches my eye.
