About me

Introduction I lived in KwaZulu Natal most of my life and two years ago we moved up to the Midrand (Johannesburg) area mainly to be near our son and his family and also to make a life for ourselves before we got too ancient! I started quilting 11 years ago and was able to get a good grounding in traditional quilting, but as I progressed and as I always had a definite leaning towards the art side of quilting I have slowly moved in this direction. I started (but did not complete) a graphics design course straight from school hence my love of anything to do with the art world. I have joined three quilting groups here in Gauteng as well as the Golden Rand Quilters Group. I am presently secretary of the Textile Art Group Gauteng which is inspiring and very motivating.
