Growing up I was surrounded by my Mother’s and Grandmother’s creative force. They sewed most our clothes, crochet our blankets, and made beautiful quilts. My Mother led the way for the embossing crazes of 1996. My Grandma painted colorful images on wood working projects my Grandfather made. Their love of pattern inspired me to capture the images they made on my work.
