I turned 50 with a bang!! My appendix ruptured on my birthday and I became critically ill. It was during this time of recovery that Spirit touched my heart in the form of mandalas ~ sacred circles. I began to see these circles everywhere I looked. They naturally found their way into my sewing hobby.
I can't remember a time when I didn't sew. From doll clothes as a child to creating my own clothes as a teenager. My seamstress and tailoring skills evolved into teaching clothing construction for Stretch and Sew Fabrics. These techniques then translated into Wearable Art. My garments won recognition in quilt shows both locally and nationally. Consequently, I discovered the joy of teaching in area quilt shops and lecturing at guild meetings. An invitation to join MArQ ~ Milwaukee Art Quilters group initiated my journey into creating art quilts. In 2003, I met artist/teacher David Walker. His meditative, 'Leap of Faith' practice had a profound effect on my self esteem and a Fiber Artist was born.
I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT MY MISSION to share my Love and Light in the form of LoveLights© ~ my healing color mandalas. Mandala refers to the circular form of sacred geometry. These LoveLights© are created using hand dyed fabrics, specialty threads, oil Paintstix, and embellishments. It is my hope that you will visit often, and are blessed by the work of my hands.
I invite you to view a selection of my favorite pieces. And if your Spirit is touched, I invite you to commission a unique LoveLight© for your own personal enjoyment or use as an heirloom quality gift.
