Return To All Artists


I earned a B.A. in Early Elementary Education. My fiber art development has included mentors and teachers in quilting, crochet, kniƫting, embroidery. I have begun exposure to fabric dye, weaving, spinning, charcoal marking, drawing, acrylics and watercolor.

I was privileged to exhibit work at the East Lake Artist Village, The Living Room sponsored by Celeste Pfau, and six teacher and two student exhibits at Space One Eleven. I have enjoyed membership in Friendship Quilters Guild, Moody Crazy Quilters, Bib & Tucker Sew-Op, Magic City Quilt Artists, SAQA, and Fiber Art Now. In 2019, I joined the NEST Artisan Guild and am currently participating in Jane Dunnewold’s Creative Strength Training Immersive for a year online.

Additionally, I have had retail booths at several Woodlawn Street Markets and the Nest Maker’s Market 2019.

I am an older emerging artist, married, two sons living in Birmingham, AL
