I call myself a designer, maker, and artist because those are the things I’ve loved to do as long as I can remember. But nobody is just about the thing they sell (or want to sell) to others. We’re all about the many different strands that make up our lives, so I am also a gardener, dilettante writer, enthusiastic collector of antique needlecraft tools, amateur genealogist, and sometime gobby bitch.
Lately, I have been designing quilts for Today’s Quilter magazine and doing marketing and design work for Bramble Patch, but a few years ago I was a small business administrator and bookkeeper by day while creating textile art for sale in my spare time. Before that, I’ve been an image consultant, a marketing executive, and PA. Before even that, I was on a path to an academic career with my BA Hons (Romance Languages) and a place at Oxford to do post-graduate studies in French and Spanish literature.
While I will always love stitchcraft, I am also exploring more traditional art subjects like print-making, painting, and illustration.
