About

Life is too short for poor quality fabric and bad design.

Fabric and quilt design are my breath of fresh air. In the midst of physical chemistry tests, dance rehearsals, and studio critiques, this is my happy place.

When I begin to look around and see other people's beautiful lives with seemingly more time, less stress, cuter clothes, and handsomer men, I come back here and remember. My life is lovely. And my life is enough. I don't need more than what I have. Close friends. Comfy clothes. A wonderful family. A burgeoning church. And time and space to sew to my heart's content. Lovely. Enough.

I work with textiles because they are tactile, meant to be touched. The soft slip of fabric through your fingers, the crisp edge of a perfectly pressed seam, the holes that expose flannel linings. Each speaks of care and process and history. Textiles allow me to explore making emotions and moments tangible. To wrap my arms around my sister from miles away in the cables of an afghan. To capture the lost feeling of big life decisions in angles and juxtaposed stitches. To anchor my dreams for my niece in threads on which she can sit and stand and play. Textiles make the intangibles something that I can grasp.

Details matter. Pulling from personally designed and hand-printed fabrics, I carry quilts from conception to final binding stitch, combining traditional quilt patterns with modern colors and stitching. From hand-illustrating the designs to printing swatches, I relish the process. I follow the maxim that every choice can transform a quilt, envisioning how the eye could be directed with a line of stitching or a quilt balanced by the turn of a triangle. My fabric designs are inspired by the organic beauty outside my window and fused with the geometry of architecture and Amish quilts to create unique pieces for home and studio.

A recent graduate of Wheaton College, IL in both studio art and chemistry, I am pursuing a degree in Textile Chemistry at North Carolina State and look forward to the fresh inspiration that Raleigh and dye studies will bring to my work.
