About

Landscape Photographer Turned Cold-Weather Quilter

I’m a landscape photographer based out of Salt Lake City, although my heart still belongs to the Pacific Northwest. I sometimes wish that my subject matter had more of a focus, but I learned early on that about the only things I don’t like to photograph are wildlife and people. I’ve criss-crossed the United States and Canada, living out of my Toyota 4Runner for months at a time, searching for the perfect light, skies and landscapes…and scenes that are equally perfect in a rusted, rotting, and dilapidated sort of way. If I’m lucky, I’ll also find my “photo groove,” when all the elements in the scene just seem to come together on my LCD screen, and I know that THIS is what I’m meant to be doing. I’m excited to be able to share my favorite places and images, and hopefully, inspire people to get out and see this amazing world we live in! Prints are available for order through my website, www.tfwphotography.com, but if you're looking for boxed note card sets, you've come to the right place!

Quilting gives me another creative outlet and allows me to continue my obsession with color once the outside world has become cold and brown. My mom helped me sew my first quilt, a baby blanket for my soon to be arriving niece, in 2008 and I was instantly hooked. I love spending hours at the fabric store, matching colors and prints, and browsing online for inspiration. In the past, my creations have always been meant to be gifted to someone in particular, and thus I've been limited by what I thought might appeal to that person. Making the decision to sell my quilts on Etsy has allowed me to let my imagination run wild, and dabble in whatever quilting style, color combination, or theme has currently caught my attention. I've worked with traditional block patterns, like pinwheels and disappearing nine patches, found patterns that showcase fabrics with larger prints, and fallen head over heels in love with harmonic convergence quilts, which look infinitely more difficult than they actually are. My stash of batik fabrics has doubled, then doubled again...and again! (My husband was a very good sport when I drug him to not one, but two fabric stores while we were on vacation in Hawaii!) I piece and bind all of my quilts using a sewing machine. However, because I lack easy access to a long-arm quilting machine, I choose to finish my quilts by hand tying them with coordinating crochet or embroidery thread.
