Quilts + Photography are two of my passions…
and when you merge the two you get awesome images of  textile art.

I’ve been sewing from an early age, and quilting for 18 years. In 2010 I started a longarm quilting business. When customers came to pick up their beautiful quilts I had to give them back… and I wanted to have a memory of the quilt I helped design. So, I made a commitment to take a picture of every quilt that I longarmed for a customer.  I wanted to document my progress and I wanted something I could look back on.  This led me to enrolling in Photography classes at the local college. I thought one class…I’d learn the tricks of the trade…and on my way. Well, just like the quilting bug…the photography bug took hold. Each class I completed taught me new skills that both improved my photography and my approach to quilting.

My photographs have been featured in the “Fons and Porter: Love of Quilting” magazine in a feature article in the July/August 2018 publication. My quilt images were featured in the feature article: Quilts of Valor Ceremony. I have won numerous First Place ribbons for my photography at the San Diego Fair.
