I was born in Asheville, NC and grew up in the Western North Carolina mountains. After High School I moved to Jacksonville Beach, FL, where I lived, married, and raised a family for 30 years. After the last child graduated I moved back to Asheville.
I retired early and went back to school to finish my degree. I wanted to be an “artist” since I was a little girl. In 2005 I enrolled into the Professional Crafts Program in Textiles at Haywood Community College just outside Asheville. I studied all aspects of textiles. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2007.
I am currently a full time Mixed-media Fiber Artist working from my home studio.
