After retiring from full time international career in the oil/gas industry, I wanted to pursue my long term interest/hobby in patchwork and quilting.   I love fabric and have a passion for bright colours.  At first I started making quilts for family and friends and then I set up Quirky Quilts in 2010 as a vehicle to sell quilts.  I now spend my time making quilts for stock, which I sell online or on an occasional market stall, or for commission.

I have just stepped down as a co-convenor of  the Contemporary Quilt Group (part of WA Quilters Association) in Perth, Australia but am still very much involved with the Group.  I also assist in teaching patchwork and quilting at a  WA Quilters Association (WAQA) Beginners class and run a small WAQA sewing group.

Inspired by all my quilting buddies, I also have great fun taking part in quilting challenges and entering competitions.
