I am a dabbler at heart, so while I have worked in many different media (including watercolors, acrylic & oil painting; sewing, quilting…..), I have long been captivated by the paper art of quilling. My first exposure to quilling was through the work of paper artist Yulia Brodskaya; motivated by her artistry (and encouraged by my sister), I purchased my first quilling kit just 4 years ago (2015). I am now a member of the Little Circles Quilling group, North American Quilling Guild and The Quilling Guild and I have worked diligently to incorporate new techniques and ideas in my work.
Away from art, I am a U.S. Army veteran, mother, wife, and college graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Technical Management degree. A native of Advance, Missouri, I now live in San Diego, California.
