About

My creative passion is designing projects using wool fabric and threads as my medium.

I started out as an Art major when I first attended college but a year later I changed my major to Nursing where I finished my education at Duquesne University in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have had a wonderful and fulfilling career as a nurse, largely in Emergency Nursing and Management. I still work full time as a nurse but I have continued to love art, design and creative pursuits, with a special interest in needlework. I am generally self taught and particularly love utilizing fabric to make a picture that tells a story.

Applique' was always a favorite quilting technique of mine and in the early 1990's I discovered not only the ease of working with wool but also the texture and definition that wool allows. In 2012, in honor of my parent's 50th anniversary, I decided to make my parents a special quilt, having been inspired by Joann Mullaly's book Wool Crazy. Initially I started to utilize her designs from the book but as I began to work, I decided to incorporate my own designs into the wool quilt that reflected my parent's years together and family events. This project subsequently inspired me to forge ahead on my further projects and designs.

I find inspiration in nature and the beauty of the northwestern Pennsylvania foothills of the Allegheny Mountains where I live but I am also inspired by travel and the events that make up life.
