About

Hold your breath and jump

Sometimes in the life it seems that all the little tiny pieces slide in their exact position, you can see a pattern, identify the design, feel the red thread that unify all...
You only need to take courage and become part of the quilt of your life.

Growing up in a family who put lot of importance on culture and arts, and being a sea lover, I earned a Marine Biology degree and a master's before fully putting my hands in the art world, and this is why recognizable marine elements and natural environments are often imagery in my quilts, besides emotionally strong subjects.

After learning traditional quilting I explored hand-dyeing and painting on fabrics discovering the great possibilities of these techniques in making award winning quilts, which have shown in national and international shows, and been published in national magazines (Magic Patch, Quiltitalia newsletter).

Now I'm gaining confidence with a new technique, fabric marbling, and I'm working to include marbled fabrics in my future quilts and workshops.

I regularly teach basic and advanced quilting/patchwork classes, I write for a magazine (Patchwork Magazine) and I'm enrolled in the "Quilt Judging Course" organized by the Quilters' Guild of British Islands, with the goal of being an accredited Quilt Judge by 2013.
