EXPERIENCE

Retired from a 30 year professional career in Nutrition Administration followed by 10 years as a Realtor I took up volunteer work as a instructor at Coffee Creek Correctional Quilters in Willsonville, OR  from 2010-2013.  

I taught classes in quilt shops for jacket and quilt design and piecing: Dallas, OR and Wheeler, OR.

I took elective classes in art history and drawing St. John’s University Collegeville, MN.  I have participated in numerous classes and workshops from art quilters and fabric dyers.
