Quilts + Photography are two of my passions…
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.
