I grew up in Central Pennsylvania, attending the yearly county and state fairs and seeing the beautiful, traditional hand-made quilts from the local Amish community. I have been interested in the rich heritage and skill developed in those hand-stitched quilts. Sewing has been a generational craft in my family with my mother, grandmothers, and great grandmothers working in sewing factories as they raised their families.
As I sew, I can imagine these women as they sat before their sewing machines. Seeing the way the fabrics and colors flow together, creating their own story, I began to see my place in sewing.
My passions lie in the color narrative that is created when curating palettes based on nature, emotions, and dreams and pairing with found fabrics.
