Whether I am creating art or providing a massage, working with my hands is my passion. This passion began as a child when my grandparents gave me a kit in which I had to knit a scarf, sew an apron and crochet a hat. 

   
I soon took after my mother by sewing my own clothes. (OK - I was still sewing the buttons on my gown when my date arrived to take me to the prom!  LOL!!!)  Quilting, then, increased my love of fibers.  It is not uncommon for me to embarrass myself by unconsciously stroking someone's clothing because I touched his/her sleeve while conversing and I fell in love with the feel! 
 
My breakthrough came as I was frantically trying to keep up with everyone in a quilt workshop.  Doreen Speckmann (the instructor) announced, "You're a process person!"  It was as if she gave me permission to relax and not to worry about the finished product.  I truly ENJOY the process of everything I do!!! 
 
My interests are wide ranged. You will find me metalsmithing, beading jewelry, hand crafting journals and love books, quilting, knitting/crocheting, claying (ceramics and polymer clay) and doing stained glass and papier tole.  Since joining the Western Avenue Studios family, I officially consider myself an "artist."  By the way, I am very good at helping relieve aches and pains and reducing stress - I incorporate hot stones in all my massage services.
