This love has lead to a huge collection of vintage textiles and needle crafts that I work into quilts, tote bags, pillows and anything else I can think of.

When I was in high school, my passion continued as I made a lot of ceramic animals and people. Scholastically, I earned my BA in Journalism with a minor in Art from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN.
