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 in the year 2000 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.
In 2013 I decided to enter a quilt titled May Tree to the special exhibit called "Traditions" at the Huston Quilt Festival. It was shortlisted to the 20 that travelled throughout the USA for a year.
Next year another quilt, titled Mother Earth Is Our Home enjoyed the same journey, then in 2016 it was part of the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, UK.
From June 26th 2020 to November 2020 it is exhibited in the Nebraska Quilt Museum in the "For the Love of Gaia" exhibit curated by Luana Rubin.
This was the quilt that crystallized my special applique technique the "Draw-Sew-Trim" that was published as an eBook in 2018.
Since then I started teaching it all over the world and published several patterns with it.
