My mission in life is to create purposeful art that inspires and to share with others the happiness in discovering their own creative spark. I have an AAS in Textiles and Weaving from R.I.T and a BS in Studio Art from Nazareth. My grandmother shared a very special gift with me when I began sewing at age 4.
