About Me


I owned flowers shops for almost 20 years and had a career as a photo stylist for several years where I learned to appreciate photography and digital editing.

Me and my flowers

I learned to sew at a young age, and never dreamed that one day I could create my own fabrics, ribbons and other surface designs.  I’ve been digitizing designs for over five years and am still amazed at the tools and websites available to create whatever you can imagine.

I get most of my inspiration from nature.  Flowers, birds, colors or a tiny insect can spark an entire collection of my digital designs.

I enjoy running, traveling, gardening, sewing, embroidery, quilting, photography, bicycling, baking, cross country skiing, ice skating and bird identification.

Thank you for visiting.
