My Bio

i am 48 yoa. i have lived in Cookeville, Tn for the past 3 years after retiring as a police officer after 26 years with the miami beach police department. i took my first quilting class 1 1/2 years ago. i went online to look for patterns and came across my first art quilts and was hooked from that moment. i ordered several books on how to make them. i had help via the internet and phone calls from Joyce Becker. she wrote several books and answered many of my questions. my first attempt was the Cream City sign. i entered it this year at our county fair and took first place in its category and best of show. the quilts of buildings are exact replicas made from photos i take. the hotel leilani and the witches living room came from sketches i made. i currently have several of them on display for sale at west textures framing and fine art in cookeville, tn.
