Working with fabric or fiber most of her life Ann continues to explore the possibilities. Ann’s art quilts have been published and have traveled Internationally. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows. Ann has presented lectures/talks and trunk shows, has taught and on occasion still teaches live classes. She enjoys making videos lessons and demos for her YouTube channel in hopes of encouraging others to give quilting, fiber art, and mixed media a try. Ann admires knitting and crochet, and though she can’t knit and can only crochet a chain stitch, she’s discovered other ways to use yarn!
