Welcome to My World!

Thread painting is a newly recognized form of art rapidly gaining popularity. It is expressed through fabric, fibers and quilting skills employing a free-motion application of thread using a sewing machine. From a blend of various embellishment techniques, beautiful works of art are created.

As my style evolved and my thread painting passion grew, I wanted to share it with others. While teaching classes in various venues I frequently encounter students who lack the confidence to try their hand. My favorite bit of advice is to say, “Yes, you can do this!” and it always proves to be true. Once they get involved students love this form of expression, and I enjoy watching them master the skills to advance on their own.

Allow me to show you how thread painting works! To inquire about classes or the information shown on this site, please use my contact information below. I look forward to hearing from you.
