Early on I learned that I am not a rule follower nor take direction easily. Therefore teaching original design, landscape adaptations and fabric manipulation is a perfect fit. Each class is unique both to the students and to the work they produce.
I find joy and laughter in every class and in every student. My classes and workshops are an extension of the art that I create. Bringing the creative energy into the classroom with each student is what I strive for and find great pleasure.
