About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Quiltmaker
Location Searcy, Arkansas, United States
Introduction I am a quiltmaker/embroiderer passionately obsessive about fabrics, buttons, trims, and old photos. I am a hunter/gatherer who loves flea markets. I work in my backyard studio I call Bird Nest on the Ground. I have been married for 44 years. We have two children, Kelly (a real estate broker/artist living in Searcy) and Scott (a computer "geek" living in San Francisco) and one grandson, Tyler. My husband is retired from Entergy and is my own personal cheerleader. We have a male cat named Ethel who allows us to live in our house. I have been teaching quiltmaking since 1985 and have had five titles published by Leisure Arts, Inc. My work is included in both private and public collections. I love what I do!!
