I was born and raised in Bonham, Texas and was a resident of Sherman for the past 30 plus years. I learned to piece at the age of 17. I took three art quilting classes back in 2011 and now I am more attracted to the artistic side of quilting than the traditional, but I have since started combining the two methods together so that I don’t forget the traditional side. I have been an instructor for the past five years since learning the portraiture technique. I have won numerous awards as a mixed media artist and as a quilt artist.
