My passions include creating digital design on my Macintosh computers (big time Mac junkie); quiltmaking and working with a variety of media such as pigment inks, paints, dyes, fabric, papers, and threads; and photography, using my cameras (Nikon girl) and printers (Epson junkie).
I have authored or co-authored 15 books, have written the tech column for The Professional Quilter magazine since 1996, and write for other publications whenver time permits. I also work as a graphic artist and website consultant and am co-founder of GloDerWorks, a full service Web company with offices in the US and UK.
