I'm a girly-girl who's good with power tools, a wordsmith, an artist mixing media, a textile designer, and a duck liner-upper.

 I've written three books and recorded 2 DVDs about art quilting and surface design, appeared on quite a few episodes of Quilting Arts TV (seen on PBS stations nationwide), and teach art quilting, surface design, and mixed media classes all over the world, as well as online.

​I also design textiles and homewares, help clients with custom woodworking projects (I'm a whiz with interior barn doors!), and offer e-design services for the decor challenged. I work from a light-filled loft studio in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
