I always loved crafts, I learned crocheting, knitting, embroidering weaving as a child, my grandma was a great inspiration and teacher. As a teenager, I sewed dresses for myself and my sister. But it was only 16 years ago when I found a patchwork book and I just had to try something... Since then I can not stop finding new challenges, something new to learn.
As a teacher of biology and chemistry, I always had great enthusiasm and appreciation towards nature. The beauty and healing power of nature, the symmetry, shapes and colours amaze me every day. That is how I started to create mandalas and sew my visions into the fabric.
A few years ago I decided to enter a quilt titled May Tree to the special exhibits in Huston Quilt Festival. It was elected to the 20 best and travelled throughout a year in the USA.
Next year another quilt, titled Mother Earth Is Our Home enjoyed the same journey, while my husband and I paid a visit as well in Huston and Chicago as exhibitors.
