Always fascinated by color and fabric, I've been sewing since childhood and quilting since 1987.  Focusing on machine techniques, I use piecing, appliqué and digital imagery to create complex, heavily quilted pieces.  My quilts have been exhibited nationally and won awards at a variety of major shows. A background in engineering has led me to use computer generated images and designs for much of my work.
